Every graduate of Holy Cross bears with him a small reflection of 
many facets, fused into a composite whole called a Jesuit education. 
No accident is the outcome, but the result of over four hundred years' experience. In classroom, 
Chapel, intramural field, we learn by precept and example, for such is 

their method. To inscribe this book to one man would be an injustice to the 
system and its clerical components. Therefore, we dedicate this volume to a marvelous 
collection of educators, the entire faculty, religious and lay, of 

Holy Cross. 




From the fateful year, 1540, the time-honored 
See of St. Peter has been divinely endowed 
with a mighty sword of truth against the pagan horde, a 
rampart of strength, the Society of Jesus. Its creator was a fabulous figure, 
St. Ignatius Loyola. Born of nobility and nourished in 
Spanish knight-errantry, he discovered 
religion while recuperating from a battle wound. His spiritual fervor knew no 
bounds. With the acquisition of stalwart scholars, Faber and Xavier, was conceived 
"The Company of Jesus." The battlecry sounded "ad maiorem 

Dei gloriam"; the ammunition, poverty, chastity, and, essentially, 
obedience. Success and sanctity attended their efforts. 
The results of Loyola's life in the present day framework 

may be seen by an inspection of the Holy Cross microcosm : 
such an inspection we present in the 
following pages.

Worcester is a sprawling giant of a town : indus- 
tries abound, businesses prosper, nearly a quarter 
of a million people reside here. On the hill 
Pakachoag, we know her only slightly, but, from 
our knowledge, the "Heart of the Common- 
wealth" is as friendly as it is spacious. 


"... close interdependence of philosophy and theology, of reason and 

faith . . ."In May, 1950, Bishop Wright thus eloquently 

described the Jesuit scholastic method. Yet, the newly-consecrated leader 

of Worcester's faithful could not have better epitomized himself. From our 

association, he emerged to us a brilliant orator, an inspiring Prelate, 

and a great man of God. 

Most Reverend John J. Wright, D.D. 
Bishop of Worcester

The faculty of Holy Cross College cannot be interpreted 
as an isolated unit in the stream of time and 
space: it lives in the tradition of other men, in 

other times and other places. St. Ignatius 
started that tradition and gave them their 

purpose. By offering the work of his intellect 
for the glory of God, Ignatius 
J began the undying consecration of centuries of 

scholarship to God. Thousands of men in the last 
four centuries have helped mold and carry 
on that same tradition of intellectual excellence and 
consuming purpose that one hundred men in Worcester 
now share. The line from Ignatius to the faculty we know is a straight one, 
and one moving inexorably on. 





The Rector of a Jesuit college, as St. Ignatius' present day delegate, must 
manifest those educational principles of the Society of Jesus as enunciated in 
the Ratio Studiorum. As the guardian for both the students and faculty alike, 
he is the synthesizing force of the various departments which compose the 
teaching curriculum here at Holy Cross. All subjects, whether they be Greek, 
Philosophy or the modernized sciences of Physics and Sociology, must be chan- 
neled to achieve that unity of education which will produce the whole man. 

The President of our college, Very Reverend John A. O'Brien, S.J., has a 
three-fold position as Administrator, Friend and Spiritual Leader of our campus. 
In the day to day problems which confront him, as chief executive of an out- 
standing educational institution, Father O'Brien's personality and ability are 
ideally suited for these tasks.

In Fenwick Hall there are a group of earnest and 
industrious men. Most of us are not so acquainted 
with them as we are our teachers and corridor pre- 
fects. A plethora of paper work and a hundred ad- 
ministrative decisions are their daily responsibility. 

The Deans undertake to mould the characters 
of the students to habits of patient industry, of 
mental and moral temperance and intellectual in- 
terests. They are the men that aim to mature our 
faculties and mould our habits on a firm and sub- 
stantial foundation which will support the super- 
structure of our particular callings. 

As in any system, discipline is essential, with the 
primary aim here being formation of character. 
This is one of the themes of our education. The 
Student Counsellor fulfills the position as special 
friend and advisor to the student body in matters 
spiritual and material, in their studies and their 
social activities.

The unique distinction of the Jesuit Code of Edu- 
cation, as displayed in each of the Departments 
here at Holy Cross, is its ability to mould men har- 
moniously in intellect and in will as men of char- 
acter and virtue. Scholastic philosophy, with which 
all Juniors and Seniors are so familiar, crowns the 
training of our liberal arts college. It gives a founda- 
tion for an adequate understanding, interpretation 
and application to human life of the sciences, both 
physical and social, and, by providing a rational

basis for faith, becomes the handmaid of religion. 

The theology of sanctification and salvation is 
intrinsic to the Jesuit Code, for it takes into con- 
sideration not only man's complete growth and 
the totality of his relations, but also, and essen- 
tially, his elevation to a supernatural destiny. In 
reaching the goal of whole men the cornerstone 
must be an accurate knowledge of Christian moral- 
ity. This will be a basis for the conduct of our en- 
tire life. It will always be maintained that religion 
is the proper and supreme integrating principle of 
knowledge. It is the highest concern of man, the 
strongest defense of a nation. 

These men are all long trained in the world's best 
wisdom. They are unexcelled teachers in the eternal 
truth, the law of God. Studying under them we can 
not but enjoy the fruits of their knowledge. 

If we be men, this is the system which made us!

The greatest artists of language are admittedly 
the writers of Greece and Rome. To go through the 
process of expression under their guidance is like 
going to Michelangelo for scuplture or to Raphael 
for painting. Strong foundation in Latin and Greek, 
these are the tools of a thinking man, for they help 
develop his faculties of observation, analysis, dis- 
crimination and taste. They become the basis of 
correct, elegant and forceful self-expression. It is 
through a study of the humanities that we are 
equipped with that intellectual polish which is the 
mark of educated Christian gentlemen. Then, by 
reason of our intellectual fitness, we are capable of 
solving those composite problems of life — social, 
civil, moral and religious.

As America's horizons of wealth and want nar- 
row and distant lands bring their cultures and cus- 
toms closer to our shores, the Cross graduate, hav- 
ing studied a modern language for at least two 
years, will be able to appreciate the peculiar great- 
nesses of our foreign neighbors. 

We have Le Croise, our French publication and 
also our German Club with its Deutsch songs and 
banquets. German and French are vital to the 
scientist and the doctor as they strive to keep apace 
with the discoveries of foreign contemporaries. 
The journalist and the author must be virtual poly- 
glots if they hope to catch the inrHWtual seeds 
being sown by men of many lands. The latest inno- 
vation in our modern language department is the 
presence of foreign students who can give us a per- 
sonal touch with their language and an introduc- 
tion to the latest idiom and nuance.

The adaptability of the Ratio Studiorum is

are mentioned implicitly in the Ratio as it sets up 
a system whereby our men are prepared to meet any 
and all present day problems. This particular de- 
partment has the enviable task of carefully training 
the Holy Cross man as he prepares to delve into the 
complicated mechanism of the business world. 
Here are taught the fundamentals of economics and 
the intricacies of tax situations. Here the future 
magnate becomes cognizant of the various economic 
structures and acquires a practical appreciation of 
the democratic way of life. The student is broad- 
ened and perfected to an' even keener degree as he 
integrates these studies with sound business ethics 
which are essential to the successful, Catholic

As the Holy Cross senior learns in Ethics, Man 
has a three-fold relation — to God, to his fellow 
men and to all of God's creatures. It is this second 
relationship, Man's obligations to his fellow man, 
with which the Education and Sociology Depart- 
ments deal. Here we are taught more fully the re- 
sponsibilities which face us as social beings. The 
evils, difficulties and functions of society are 
brought more sharply to the student's attention as 
he works to attain a better knowledge of his place 
in society. One of the particular difficulties facing 
world society today is lack of proper education. A 
drought of teachers has brought about a serious 
problem in this, one of the most time-honored pro- 
fessions. The teacher is the mason who lays the 
cornerstone of democracies by imbuing youth with 
strong, firm principles. The Education and Soci- 
ology Departments strive to produce these teachers 
and citizens.

The approach to English literature here at the 
Cross is definitely literary rather than historical or 
scientific. Expression will be emphasized through- 
out. Just as the Jesuit student of the 16th century 
was expected to be able to write and deliver a Latin 
speech or poem and to compose and stage a Latin 
Play, so the modern student of English, trained 
according to the Ratio, will be competent to ex- 
press himself in a variety of literary forms. He must 
have mastery of a lucid, attractive and forceful 

An appreciation for the works of the ancient 
masters has been embodied in the Fine Arts curricu- 
lum. Paintings, statues and the architecture of the 
Ancients and moderns are studied in the light of 
the ennobling emotions they arouse. A love and 
appreciation of the beautiful is the object of our 
Fine Arts course.

In order to produce informed men for any posi- 
tion in life, but especially those positions which 
pertain to government, an expansive background is 
a prime requisite. There is perhaps no better way to 
evaluate modern problems and plan for future diffi- 
culties than to study and understand the panorama 
of past events. The History and Political Science 
Department combine to give the Holy Cross stu- 
dent not only a thorough knowledge of history and 
its effects but also to prepare them to take their 
places as leaders in what will be history in the 

A clear concept of the trust of public office mani- 
fests only too clearly the need for honest devoted 
men who will strive to perfect and preserve our 
government and protect its interests at all times. 
The Holy Cross Senior, reflecting the enthusiasm 
of the department members, will be able to watch 
over the Lady Nemesis and her twin scales to see 
that they are never tilted from the side of justice.

The metal-cloaked Crusader on his strong white 
steed has just this year taken on Air Force blue, 
eyeing a career in the wild blue yonder. Their base 
of operations are offices and classrooms in Beaven 
Hall, staffed by a group of men who have given un- 
stintingly of their effort and interest, showing that 
they aim to be a vital part of Holy Cross. 

Flights and Squadrons performed their drilling 
exercises on Wednesday afternoons, supplemented 
by the latest and best Air Force facilities for well- 
equipped class work. In its first year on our campus 
the Air Force ROTC has displayed an enviable ex- 
ample of cooperation and ability. May the record 
they have achieved perdure for many a decade here 
at Holy Cross. 



Ignatius' first students were the little band to whom 

he communicated his fire: we are his latest. 
They were the members of his religious army: 

we members of his army in a broader sense. In 
accord with his principles, our bodies, wills, 
and intellects have been trained in the true 
proportion that makes a man. 
Not the crude aggregate of facts, but the pattern 
has been the goal: not the stuffing of the mind, 
but its sharpening. In the first case, Ignatius' 
disciples were set forth, thus equipped, upon a world 
to be won; in the latest, his lay disciples, equally 
well equipped, go forth to a world that, won often in the past, must be 
won once more. 









The Worcester Telegram for September 21, 1948, recorded, on page 2, the fact that 
another freshman class was that day registering at Holy Cross. Page 1 carried the 
news that the day was warm and showery, and that Russia had promised to move 
all troops from Korea by January 1, 1949. 

As a freshman class, we were fortunate to be blessed with a new President, Very 
Rev. John A. O'Brien, S.J., a new football coach, a new gym, a new basketball coach, 
and a host of new friends to be made. Before the first week of school had ended, the 
Boston fans were already baiting the New York fans (Cleveland won), and "Slow 
Boat to China" was climbing to the top of the Hit Parade. Our football season ended 
with a 5-5 record, but the game of the year was a freshman affair, in which Paul 
Gallo led the yearlings to a 38-12 victory over Harry Agganis and his B.U. club. In 
November, Truman beat Dewey, Vaughan Monroe broadcast from Fenwick, and 
B.C. edged us by one point. 

Winter brought senior theses, the famous anti-snowball ordinance, and basketball. 
Jimmy Dilling led a good team into the National Invitation Tournament and the 
wonders of radio added to our enjoyment of the evening. Lights burned late in the 
PATCHER office in Beaven as the book was sent to press. With spring came our last 
vacation, baseball on Fitton Field where Jack Concannon captained the nine, a few 
holes of golf, stick-ball on the terrace, and — graduation! 

As sophomores, we found ourselves to be living examples of the tradition that 
"everything happens in Wheeler." WNEB was playing a little ditty called "I Never 
See Maggie Alone" and the Red Sox were leading the league (Yankees won). Our 
football season, which had seemed so promising in September, grew more disappoint- 
ing each week and ended in disaster one bleak Saturday at Braves Field. Yet school 
spirit never ran higher, and the climax came with the greatest and most spontaneous 
"March on Worcester," which also proved to be our farewell to Doctor Osmanski. 
In January, somebody relieved Brinks, Inc. of a million dollars and the basketball 
team embarked on a record-breaking streak of twenty-six straight victories. 

Jim Thornton won the presidency for the second year, The Cardinal was the coun- 
try's best-selling novel, and Bob Baker entertained at the Sophomore Smoker, a truly 
memorable evening for many of us. Cousy and Company played phenomenal ball 
throughout that winter until the fateful Columbia game, and finally ran out of gas 
in the N.C.A.A. Tournament. John W. McGarry won the Best Speaker Trophy to 
highlight the year for the Sophomore Oratorical Society, the discipline office pro- 
hibited the firing of rifles about the campus, and the pyramid clubs came and went in 
short order. In the spring, Worcester became a diocese, and Bishop Wright, receiving 
an honorary Ll.D. from the college, swept to immediate popularity by suspending

all restrictions over a long weekend. During the last months of school, the roar of 
steamshovels woke sleepy Wheelerites bright and early as the Biology Building began 
to sprout from the earth. Now we were getting somewhere. 

Faced with the Korean war, universal military training, and a new Dean of Dis- 
cipline, we returned to Alumni and Beaven for our junior year. The popular song was 
"The Tennessee Waltz," New York was leading the American League, and "Who 
did you get for philosophy?" was the junior conversation-starter. We had a new foot- 
ball coach, Dr. Eddie Anderson, and his prescription produced a team worth watch- 
ing, plus that important victory over B.C. Johnny Turco won the Captain Eddie 
O'Melia Trophy, and Bob Baker won the presidency of the class, "The Man With 
the Plan" emerging victorious after one of the most hectic campaigns ever seen on 
the hill. 

Our basketball team that year lost five games, a betting scandal hit New York 
sports, and Alumni Hall rocked under a barrage of nocturnal pyrotechnics. In Feb- 
ruary, the discipline office lost count of class absences as a flu epidemic sent hundreds 
wobbling homeward. A crossword puzzle craze swept the school, and the Kefauver 
Crime Investigation proved to be television's top attraction. Throughout all this, 
George Ducharme and his Junior Prom committee had been up to something, and on 
May 4 we "had it." The most spectacular of all Holy Cross proms, this one featured 
the music of Freddy Martin and the decorations of Bill Flynn as the highlight of the 
greatest weekend ever held on campus. We never did recover. 

Near the end of that year, a familiar figure and a dismal ballad returned to remind 
us that "Old Soldiers Never Die." We had our finals, took the draft exemption test, 
worried our way through the orals, and went home. 

While the Giants were winning the pennant from the Dodgers (and the Yankees 
were in turn winning the Series), we swarmed into Carlin for our senior year. We had 
our share of "big" men and they ranked with the best in recent Crusader history: 
George Ducharme was Class President, Bill Flynn headed the Student Congress, Jim 
Hayes led the Purple Key, and Jack Kapp won the coveted honorary presidency of the 
freshman class. Our three editors, John McGarry of the Patcher, Ed Meyering of the 
Tomahawk, and Emmett Ryan of the Purple were outstanding at their tasks. Jim 

Thornton held the presidency of Alpha Sigma Nu, Myles Whalen directed WCHC, 
and Dennis Lyons, our summa cum laude scholar, also led the B.J.F. Debating Society. 
Finally, J. J. Sullivan was chairman of our last social event, the Senior Ball. 

The juke boxes popularized "Sin" on a national scale, Hollywood released "Quo 
Vadis," and we had a memorable retreat, delivered by Rev. William Donaghy, S.J. 
Innovations were in order that season, the waiters in Kimball sported new uniforms, 
and music became a feature of the dining hall, at no extra cost. 

We had been waiting to see that football team, and as the season progressed, the 
talk turned to bowl bids. Captain Mel Massucco led a powerful aggregation which 
steamrollered eight opponents, and the names of Turco, McCann, Feltch, Doyle and 
Foley graced many sectional All-American teams. But a freshman quarterback and 
a desperation pass in the final ten seconds of the B.C. game robbed us of the victory 
we had most wanted for four years. Returning to school, we withstood a one-day 
assault by the lads from Chestnut Hill, and went back to work. 

Winter brought senior theses, the famous anti-snowball ordinance, and basketball. 
Lights burned late in the Patcher office in Beaven as the book was sent to press. 
With spring came our last vacation, baseball on Fitton Field where Jack Concannon 
now captained the nine, a few holes of golf, stick-bail on the "terrace," and — 

Looking ahead is never easy; in these days it is seldom pleasant. At this time we 
would rather look back: college, we were told, would be the happiest days of our 
lives. Often we found them anything but that, yet all will agree that when we had 
a good time at the Cross, we had a great time. We will remember those good times, 
along with the work and worry which were a necessary part of our education. We 
will remember our friends, that "great bunch of guys" whom we could not have 
met at any other school. We will remember the professors who gave so freely of their 
time and effort in our behalf and were our constant spiritual and intellectual examples. 
The campus, and the days and nights during which it was our home, form an unfor- 
gettable part of our lives, a memory which time will never erase. And finally, as for 
the last time we leave Holy Cross, we will remember that it was here we became men.

"Sharp." That word sums up Don — a sharp mind, sharp dress, and sharp wit. The 
name Agnew always appeared at the head of the Dean's List, not only because it begins 
with an "A," but also because the Agnew marks were always tops. Don was an 
accountant's "Mr. Anthony" to his fellow disciples of Doctor Peragallo. While living 
at the "Shelburne Avenue Frat," Don proved that his talents extended beyond the 
books to such domestic problems as cooking and party organization. A stiff game of 
golf was Don's afternoon pastime, while he considered a game of bridge, accompanied 
by a few beers, to be the ultimate in quiet evenings at home.

"Who labors why?" That might have been Jim's retort to any suggestion of earnest 
toil. Was he somewhat irresponsible? Apparently, at least, insofar as his record in 
activities indicated. There was ever-present promise, but Jim seemed perpetually pre- 
occupied behind the mask of his engaging smile. He could at once amuse and confound 
his friends, usually preferring to entertain rather than triumph. In all instances, Jim 
displayed rare geniality and versatility, and a heightened sensitivity to life's promises. 
No, perhaps we can't laud Jim's listed accomplishments, but we must credit his sin- 
cerity, saying finally that, had he subdued his preoccupations, he could have sub- 
stantially enriched a prosperous class.

Old Homer's sage saying, "Everything in due measure," suited Gil's philosophy of 
life to the proverbial "T. " Each day was balanced; there were hours for study in the 
solitude of his room; perhaps an hour or so for a workout in the small gym; precious, 
devout minutes for prayer in the Chapel. The well balanced life produced the well 
proportioned man; an intellect trained and developed to Dean's List specifications, a 
perfectly coordinated body blessed with health; a deep, heart-felt devotion to the 
Faith. Thus did Gil profit himself and the rest of us, in four well planned and fully- 
lived years at Holy Cross.

The prize export of Greenwich, Ed was the defender of New York and the critic of 
Boston. A come-what-may friend and a liberal man with a dollar, "The Bullet" will 
always be remembered for his natural ability and "never say die" attitude while 
cheerleading. His wardrobe, while never widely emulated, was Ed's pride and joy, 
and the subject of many a critical debate among his friends. Sincerity and maturity, 
the keynotes of his personality, will carry Ed a long way in the business world.

If you were in Worcester during October of 1950, you knew who "The Man With the 
Plan" was. The best-dressed man on campus, Bob Baker had as many facets to his 
personality as he had ties. As President of the Junior Class, he had an administration 
described simply as "unforgettable." Not choosing to run for office in senior year, 
"Bake" held the limelight as our master Master of Ceremonies at rallies and smokers, 
managing to make "Five-Foot-Two" (with variations) a campus favorite. A driving 
personality, unique mechanical ability, and organizational talent made him out- 
standing. Bob was a man of efficiency and enthusiasm: — a man who could get things

Either the corridors boomed with his golden voice or the halls were still, and everyone 
knew that "Barb" was enjoying his regular afternoon nap. A football star at Boston 
Latin, he almost became a Crusader lineman but medicine was his first love. Scholas- 
tically, the coveted Dean's List came automatically to the blond boy from Everett. 
Singing before he could walk, he was an essential factor in the success of the Glee 
Club Octet. If college life was an indication of the "Barb's" natural talents, we can be 
sure that his future will be as bright as his past was here on the Hill.

Monday mornings we often greeted Jack Barden, suitcase in hand and books under his 
arm, en route from Chelsea to philosophy, non-stop. Jack gloried in his "automatic" 
weekends, yet this brawny lad also spent some busy weeks in South Worcester. A 
stellar performer in clandestine debate, Jack played host to innumerable card games. 
His leisure reading progressed at the rate of a book a week, and his marks were never 
a problem. Perhaps the first man to lose a tooth on a Kimball turkey, Jack was rattled 
far less than his bridgework. A work-horse on any intramural team, he also spent a 
memorable year coaching at Worcester Academy.

When Don first ventured from the deep South to begin his college career on old Mt. 
St. James, he brought with him that characteristic Southern charm. He has since taken 
this quality, and by mixing it with the gifts that Holy Cross instills in its sons, has 
evolved into a man of great expectations. Whether he was edifying someone with his 
prodigious knowledge of opera or making sure that the radio station was running 
smoothly, he set an example of patience, sincerity, authority, and, most of all, good 
leadership. Don's quick wit and perpetual good nature will always be remembered by 
all his classmates and his friends.

Old "Batesy" never changed — and wonderful it was that he didn't. He was always 
calm and carefree, and those little things that worried us never turned his head. He 
was envied for that, and for the natural smile and easy laugh. He was a lesson that 
miserly concern never conquered, a free, open heart. When less hearty souls were down, 
his contagious high spirits invariably shattered the gloom. Besides Holy Cross, 
"Batesy" loved New York, and most weekends found him and his Buick steaming 
home for some of Mom's food. When the Buick left, the local pedestrians felt a little 
safer but a substitute for "Batesy" would be hard to find.

Well dressed, dark haired, serious looking, but not without flashes of humor, Paul 
was proud of Worcester and of Holy Cross. An outstanding day-hop, he was also an 
outstanding member of his class, finding no contradiction in being both. The Worcester 
Club benefited no more by his efforts than the Student Government, for though he 
resided off campus he was integrally bound up in "Hill" life. In leisure moments he 
contributed to the development and preservation of "Harrington Corner" and the 
"Dorf. " Out on the town, Paul's agility and smoothness on the dance floors aroused 
jealousy in less gifted young blades, but his warm friendliness conquered all.

If you needed someone to liven up your party with a few corny jokes or some songs a

extinguished grin, he had the unique quality of being able to take a ribbing as well as 
he could give one — and to give he was well able! While becoming the victor in his 
four year struggle with the Physics course, Pete found time for various other activities. 
Though track was his chief athletic concern, when the snow lay heavy on the Hill he 
was not averse to giving basketball a whirl. A clever and versatile individual was the 
"Beck," one who will never be caught with his sense of humor down.

It takes not a lengthy friendship to observe outstanding qualities in a man. As an ex- 
ample we take our friend "Rog." It was immediately evident that he was scholar, 
gentleman, and friend. He came to us after having spent two years as a second lieu- 
tenant in the Medical Corps. An M.D.'s shingle is "Rog's" goal, and if his four vears 
of persistent hard study here serve as a criterion, he shouldn't miss his mark. Ofttimes 
his French know-how, especially in conversation, proved very disconcerting to his 
struggling classmates.

You couldn't miss him. He filled life and life filled him. Hiding a boyish nature behind 
a mature facade, Ray took life's every offering in stride and refused to be ruffled by 
any minor disturbances. One of the few Chemistry majors on campus, Ray had an 
amazingly abundant knowledge of national and world affairs, and an opinion on them 
all. Facile with words, he was capable of phrasing scathing remarks; but incapable 
of delivering them with anything but a grin that denied their meaning. From the 
Chapel to Kimball to the Dorm, Ray faced life with eagerness. Holy Cross has known 
him — the world should wait for his confident step.

Dixie lost its best when Tom came North to "Yankeeland," but Crusader Hill wel-

always pleasant sounds to Tom's ears, but his heart yearned for cool mint juleps, 
southern fried chicken, and the sunny Florida beaches. His weathered white bucks 
stomped upon many dance floors, and his "rah-rah" rocked the stands at Fitton Field 
every fall weekend. A persistence and exactness rounded out his personality, one that 
will make for Bertke success in the near future.

From the service, Gene came to Holy Cross. His rather light-hearted attitude belied 
the serious purpose underlying his efforts. Realizing his field for future accomplish- 
ment, he started to prepare himself by studying theory, and by using the summer vaca- 
tion period for experience and practice. After his sophomore year, Gene married, and 
the duties and responsibilities of marriage demanded less participation in campus 
activities. These were not entirely neglected, however, and it would appear that he is 
starting well toward his goal, business management, by having learned first how to 
manage himself.

Do you like Yogurt and cabbage on the half-leaf, or carrots and Chianti? Such combina-

tastes in food were a bit exotic, his clothes and manner reflected nothing but conserva- 
tive good taste. An assiduous student, Mike spent his time concocting in the dark

Columbus, and helped engineer the navy social functions. Women passed through, but

Gentleman "Will" was soft-spoken, gentle-hearted, and the epitome of consideration. 
His courteous manner, despite the somewhat unnerving antics of his roommates, never 
disappeared. His humor was the dry, tongue-in-cheek kind that sneaks up on you. 
Before you realized it, Bill was two punch lines ahead of you, and still maintaining a 
sober countenance. A promising football future was cut short by a tricky knee injury, 
but during his ephemeral career "Wee Willie" threw his weight around Fitton Field 
with authority. Trick knee or no, Bill was a demon off the intramural boards, and 
under various unpronounceable aliases, a star pivotman for sundry downtown teams.

to express his views. That he was a scholar is attested to by the consistent appearance 
of his name on the Dean's List; that he was a lover of sports was evidenced by his 
active participation and his attendance at all athletic contests. That Dick was a gentle-

lead him to as much success in the future as they have in the past.

For Stan, a career at Holy Cross was a challenge, and his diploma a victory well won. 
Working assiduously at all that he undertook, he received an education which meant a 
great deal, while shouldering more burdens than most of us realized. As a letter win- 
ner, Stan's great work at tackle proved unforgettable. An all-round athlete, this 
powerful lad garnered an intra-mural trophy for his excellence in field events. Stan 
offered further proof for the adage that the successful man is never too busy for another 
job when he got married in the summer of Sophomore year. An athlete, a student, and 
a guy to admire was "Stan The Man."

A shock of black hair, and a flash of white bicuspids bounced across the Western 
plains, over the Appalachians, and landed with a breathless "Hi" at the revered 
institution clinging to the side of the Hill Pakachoag. His toothy effervescence and 
western warmth were natural friend winners. He derived impish delight from prac- 
tical jokes and corridor skirmishes, but graciously "took it" when the tables were 
turned. A strong serve, and that same bouncing vitality made him a formidable varsity 
racketeer. A deadly western one-hander made him a feared adversary on intramural 
basketball courts. The secret of his energy was those forty winks, the secret of his 
popularity, his sincerity.

Frank was never recognized or discovered. Rather you could feel his presence before

barring lesser men. Baseball was his passion, dancing his love, and any form of fun his 
food and drink. Oft in the wee hours of the morning his brash baritone echoed down 
the corridors, either in heated debate or just plain high spirits. When Frank left, the 
Hill was a little quieter, true, but we think the halls will miss his bubbling laughter.

Well groomed and steeped in the qualities of a gentleman, Dick was the man to see if 
you wanted anything done well. His ambition and drive found a happy outlet in his

pus taxi, since Dick in his generosity, could never refuse a ride to a fellow Crusader. 
A hard working "pre-med," he met all problems squarely, and generally came up with 
the best solution available. Through his rugged honesty and indomitable cheerfulness, 
Dick has left his mark on Mt. St. James.

Steve, a smiling cosmopolite, came from the hallowed halls of North High, from 
whence many a sturdy Crusader has come. He brought with him a love of science and 
of tennis. Incongruous though this may seem, he managed, in the course of his 4 years, 
to make an admirable melange of them. With his summers spent in Connecticut, and 
his winters (at least the waking hours thereof) on the "Hill," he acquired the broad 
New England outlook on life essential to an active man and doctor. The "Cross" has 
left with him a portion of her culture: he, in turn, has left his heart.

would do anything to lend a helping hand. A friend from the first day of Freshman 
year, Bill's booming laughter and quick wit will never be forgotten by those who al- 
ways criticized his hometown. Roaring back from Wellesley in the "Symphony in

we'll forget him because here is the kind of a friend one never lets go.

It is a welcome rarity when a man generously endowed with creative, scholastic, and 
athletic ability comes to Holy Cross. It is gratifying when such a man molds his native 
talents with precision and a unique sense of proportion. Driven by his desire to succeed 
and realizing his native talent, Hugh shortly became a class leader. He was an editor 
of the yearbook, the newspaper, and the literary magazine. The Career Research 
Associates flourished under his vice-presidential hands. Many social affairs owed their

One of the few Physics Majors on campus, Tom managed to blend academic achieve-

Maintaining (at times stubbornly) his home town was the ' 'glass capitol of the world, 
he, nevertheless, held Brooklyn close to his heart when it came to baseball. Dixieland 
never ceased to fascinate Tom, who during his four years on the hill integrated his 
famous rest periods with Jazz programs. The little golden Oscar on Tom's desk was 
mute eloquence to the spring in his legs and the spirit in his heart, both highly re- 
garded assets of the '52 Intramural Track Team.

Jack Brazell was a man who cast one of the most imposing shadows on the hill. His 
sharply chiseled profile and slicked-back blond hair were hallmarks on the corridor. 
That rollicking alliance of Whitney, Foley, Bacon, and Brazell formed an inseparable 
and incomparable combo that swept like a whirlwind through the social calendar. 
John's heartiness he communicated to others; thus he saved many a dying evening. His 
intramural endeavors were legend, but golf was his true love. His wood shots boomed 
down the fairways, his putter never stuttered. This second generation Crossman lived 
by a fine family tradition and set a standard that will be hard to equal.

Where there's smoke there's fire; and where there's a fire engine there's Breck. Always 
ready to take time off from studies to thrill to the wail of a fire engine from his window 
or anyone else's, Frank, nevertheless, kept in view his goal of becoming a doctor. 
His interests were wide and varied. Whenever time permitted, he was available for a 
fourth at bridge or as the organizer of a basketball expedition to the gym. Never the 
one on the outside looking in, Breck was naturally a member of the universal ukulele 
club — a trait which reflects the perseverance of his roommates, who, nevertheless, 
wouldn't have traded him for anyone.

Not by virtue of his 6' 3" frame alone, but because of some intangible quality, unique 
with him, Joe towered above most of us. Fabulous was the word for him. Adventure 
dogged his footsteps; wherever he went, the extraordinary was inevitable. Because of 
his rejuvenating spirit, the golden subtlety of his humor, his dramatic flair, his in- 
exhaustible repertoire of poems and Irish ballads, any evening or weekend became an 
occasion if Joe was there. His superior ability on the hardwood court nicely comple- 
mented his intellectual acumen. No matter where — in class, on the intramural field, 
or in the usual mad social whirl — Joe's ineffable spirit of camaraderie prevailed.

Lanky Ed gained his fame as a minor business magnate on campus, largely through a 
vigorous peddling of the New York Times. This commercial talent and easy-going 
personality made Ed a super-salesman and college luminary. Although omnipresent 
around the campus, he was such a lover of home cooking he rarely attended a weekend 
meal in Kimball. Planning dances, selling tickets to innumerable events, and prying 
cap-and-gown money from recalcitrant seniors, kept Ed busy. But the intramural 
whistle and the equally irresistible lure of economics could not be denied. Nothing 
more eloquently demonstrates his classmates' esteem for Ed then his election as Senior 
Class Treasurer.

From the thriving metropolis of Hartford, Connecticut, came one of its outstanding 
sons. From the start of his Freshman year to commencement, Jim linked himself with 
all activities, both academic and extra-curricular. His zeal in boosting his beloved 
Alma Mater was surpassed only by his application in scholastic pursuits. Never one 
to be idle, Jimmy always had something on the fire, whether it was a dance at Regis, 
or an afternoon of tennis. His unequalled technique for acquiring rack-time at oppor- 
tune moments made him the envy of all. Numerous friends serve as a living testimony 
to his amiable nature and keen wit.

With more friends than the number of Chesterfields which he passed out, Holy Cross' 
own Douglas Fairbanks Jr. was a welcome asset to any party or gathering. He had a 
dynamic personality and a quick come-back for every occasion. It was "the bull's" 
fabulous booting and running which led Alumni I to the top of the Intramural race. 
Famed for his "New York Dollies," Ray spent many an interesting summer as a life- 
guard at Point Lookout Beach, Long Island. No stranger to the Dean's List, he never 
lost sight of his prime purpose at school. His was truly an outstanding page in the 
history of the Class of '52.

"Columbo" or "T. Herbert," as Tom was often called, left us with that large repertoire 
of songs which helped us while away many a gloomy hour. A consistent Dean's List 
man, his Economics major kept Tom busily interested. One of the biggest job-holders 
on campus, Tom managed the "rec" hall where the habitues found his services in- 
dispensable. The way he could rock on his heels, convulsed with laughter, and his 
ever-welcome line of "have a cigarette," are just a few of the idiosyncrasies of Tom's 
nature that will not soon be forgotten.

Within the orbit of his friends, Bill is known as the living book of facts, for never is 
there a subject discussed without his authentic data coming to the fore. In the spring, 
he was the nobby dresser who managed the Crusader's baseball team; while the off- 
season found him recording campus history with his photographic deftness. In Bill's 
four years on the hill he has shown us all the necessary qualifications for the perfect 
college gentleman. Whatever his chosen field may be, it is most certain that he will 
succeed in true Holy Cross fashion.

"An artist without art." A thatch of red hair, a pair of horn-rimmed glasses, and a 
semi-permanent stubble beard became the trade marks of "The Bros." This techni- 
colored Brooklynite found the days too long, the nights too short, and the "joke 
book" too confining to suit his sanguine personality. Invariably he was "over to his 
aunt's." A man of eclectic tastes, T. Richard was an enthusiast of the New York 
Times, pocket-novels, jazz, beer, and beautiful women (not necessarily in that order). 
His sharp criticism, pungent phraseology, and argumentative affinity, which extended 
many a bull session into the wee hours, made "The Commissioner" an unforgetable 
campus character.

The tall lean gentleman from the Island, Bruce had a buoyant smile, the easy banter 
of metropolitan savoir-faire. His extra-curricular interests centered mainly in the 
Student Congress — as liaison man for his Sophomore corridor and as Parliamentarian 
in his Junior and Senior years. "Buck" was a tasteful dresser, diligent student, meticu- 
lous in detail — whether business, social, or spiritual obligations. To be late for ap- 
pointments, to be ungrateful or boorish was foreign to him. Easily obliging, he was 
ever eager to lend his time and energy. To those in trouble he was a sympathetic com- 
panion; while those from Boston and New York found him jovial, relaxed, and

Surpassing even his scholastic achievements were "Buck's" level disposition and his 
steadying influence on all who came in contact with him. A Pre-med and R.O. student, 
Buck was carrying one of the toughest courses on the Hill, but four years on the 
Dean's List was proof positive that no obstacle was too big for him. Studies, never- 
theless, were rarely an anchor on his social activities, for dances and parties saw him 
at his best. In the many bull sessions, it was Buck who seemed to have the soundest 
ideas. There wasn't a man on campus who didn't value his friendship and realize that 
it was a worthwhile gain.

There's plenty behind Jerry's success story. The key word? — talent — poise, maybe — 
or perhaps personality. At singing he was "gone"; and on stage he was the villain, 
hero, or clown with equal success. But Jerry was more than a showman — with his 
wide scope of friends he was a prince. The same heart that was fitted for any competi- 
tion was deep in affection for all the gang. His mind had more than wit; he possessed 
a serious outlook that kept his feet on terra firma. Jerry had most of the right answers. 
He guided himself and many of us considerably farther than we might have gone 
without his leadership.

Lee's scholarly appearance only served to cover a multitude of cultural facets. A liter- 
ary taste, manifested through constant and voluminous reading, earned him the 
presidency of the Catholic Book Club and the literary review page of the Purple. As 
staff-member, secretary, and finally "redacteur-en-chef" of Le Croise, he was awarded 
the Martineau Prize on several occasions. Definite superiority in scholastic achieve- 
ments was evident from his unfailing presence on the Dean's List. His versatility as 
organist was demonstrated at countless chapel services. Conservative in dress, reserved 
in manner, Lee is a cultured, Catholic, gentlemanly product of Holy Cross' Christian- 
humanistic training.

"Leo — the life of the party." That was "Archie" Cadrin. A resident of nearby Far- 
numsville, he came to Holy Cross from Saint John's High of Worcester and Kimball 
Union Prep of New Hampshire. Here, as in his prep school days, he was a leading 
athlete during four years of football and baseball, but coupled with his athletic career 
was a scholastic perseverance to be admired. A good average was ample proof of the 
time and effort spent with the books. With Leo, time passed quickly, for everyone 
who knew him liked him. Optimism and an altruistic attitude made him a perfect 
friend and a cherished fellow student.

No one ever crawled more bleary-eyed from bed in the morning than Charlie; yet, 
paradoxically, to most of us he'll be best remembered for his enthusiastic greetings to 
one and all around campus. Remembering everyone's name was easy for Charlie be- 
cause he liked people, and they in turn found it a pleasure to like him. The student 
handbook in describing the Purple Key, of which Charlie was a four year member, 
names its purpose as the fostering of "devotion, loyalty, and enthusiasm for Alma 
Mater." Speaking conservatively, we can confidently say that Charlie was the embodi- 
ment of the Key Ideal.

The man that plays and works hard, and then still harder, will inevitably win; but 
this man, if he plays and works with brilliance, with power to win friends, with 
inherent leadership, will win when and what he desires. Joe is such a man. An honor 
student, a man who led by example, not by word, he has, from the first, set the pace 
in whatever he did. He was President of the Outing Club and it doubled its member- 
ship, multiplied again and again in its activities and influence; he was President of the 
CRA and it grew from infancy to maturity. Success was his ... in studies, in activities, 
with his friends.

"Meden Agan," said the Greeks; and so said Vin, "Nothing to excess." This was the 
motto for Vin, who so aptly blended the scholastic and recreational advantages of 
Holy Cross. Though an honor student, he was usually prone to a game of cards, or an 
afternoon at the bowling alleys. Vin followed his philosophy of moderation save in 
two respects — a fanatic loyalty to the Yankees, and the red knit tie which was his 
trademark around campus. His joviality produced a likeable manner and his inability 
to keep a straight face never weakened his many jokes.

Mike was the guy from Warren who couldn't keep a straight face until the punch 
line. An unpredictable guy, he was as likely to head in a northerly direction on a week- 
end, as southward, to Warren. Mike sometimes found his homework a serious menace 
to his social life, but ultimately he succeeded, in varying degrees, in both. Occasionally 
he fell victim to the "Bridge-bug," but the Library never came crashing about his 
ears when he entered. No sideline spectator, Mike played all sports. But baseball — 
that was his game. Always with an answer, and always genial, Mike had personality 
plus !

This small, dapper young gentleman never hurried; his gait was, characteristically, 
one of leisure; there was ample time for polite exchanges with numerous acquaintances 
— but, paradoxically, he was meticulously punctual. Aware, from extensive perusal 
of the papers, of what was going on in the world, we regarded him, as the "seer" of 
the "back-caf." His studies, in his major field, showed him that history, often does 
repeat itself, and he always found a situation to parallel with one in present times. 
On the lighter side, he was no less informed on everyday occurrences in the "World 
of Sport" — being an ardent enthusiast and follower of the "Fancy Pants A.C." i.e. 
the Holy Cross Basketball team — the subject of most of his dissertations on "great 
ball clubs."

"Amby" was typical of the phrase "well-rounded college gentleman." During his 
four years at Holy Cross, he surrounded himself with the tools with which to develop 
his talents, ranging from reading the works of the Romanticists to listening to the 
melodies of Gilbert and Sullivan. In conversation, his subtle humor and sustaining 
remarks commanded the greatest respect from all with whom he spoke. The fact that 
Amby, even though offering many hours of work for the Yachting Club and the 
Purple Patcher, was able to retain a high position as a Math major, further attests to 
his versatility.

"Revy" manifested many of them during his tenure on the Hill. His mirthful poems 
often added needed spice to the Tomahawk; his satire on college life, given at the Junior 
Jamboree, will long be remembered; his clever repartee, issued at countless SOS and 
BJF meetings, awakened and inspired interest among his band. No one will ever

Jim was a New Yorker who brightened the New England winters with a friendly 
manner distinctively his own. It is much easier to say he was popular than to assign 
reasons for that popularity — his geniality, his robust laugh, his ability — more likely 
a happy combination of all. His greatest love was medicine, but he was equally adept 
in a wide variety of fields. Although a stellar pre-med student, he was a linguist of 
note. Whether at the radio station or the Met Club affairs, he commanded and re- 
ceived respect. With all his interests, Jim frequently managed a workout in the gym 
or a game on the tennis courts.

Every class has its group of outstanding leaders, and without doubt, Bill was one of 
our finest. Unselfishly, he devoted considerable time and effort to many tedious and 
often unrewarded tasks. A Dean's List man, a standout on all intramural fields of 
endeavor, and a celebrity at most prominent Eastern distaff colleges, Bill's magnetic 
qualities have earned him the enviable fortune of countless good friends. An organiza- 
tional genius, he never measured his many contributions to campus life in terms of 
personal gain, but rather by the success of his ventures. Friendliness, humility, and 
joviality best characterized "the ol' Case"; a sincere gentleman, he cannot help but 
be a complete success.

Ralph, perpetually in motion, was always in a jovial mood. His genial manner led to 
an immense popularity on the hill. The "Cat's" friendly smile and "Hi ya, bub" were 
familiar trademarks of his sparkling personality. In preparation for his weekend 
jaunts to Providence, he struggled vigorously (but never in vain) throughout the week 
with his chemistry books. In his leisure, Ralph demonstrated his athletic prowess on 
the intramural gridiron and basketball court, the climax coming in junior year when 
"our ball of fire" led Alumni I to the intramural touch football championship. Chem- 
istry, his passion as well as his course, has been his past; it will be his future.

"Don't take any wooden nickels," meant only one person during the past four years: 
"The Frog." Bob had a tough time keeping the French out of his English four years 
ago, but enthusiastic participation in loud and lusty bull sessions more than remedied 
the situation. He was good at many things but best at the Navy maneuvering board. 
For that his classmates are eternally grateful. Probably the best informed man on 
potatoes in Worcester, Bob would have made a fine potato-chip . . . manufacturer. 
We'll remember "The Frog" for many good things, but most of all for his frequent 
and violent renditions of "Allouette" (with gestures).

Fortune smiled happily on the bright boy from the Bronx — but he deserved it. He 
plugged the books for a starting position on the Dean's List, excelled at Intramural 
basketball, and rigged up many a front page for the "Tomahawk." He's in the Navy 
now — but with the pleasant prospect of graduate school first. "Twitch" studied hard, 
worked hard, and was a past master at playing hard. From flower beds in Buffalo to a

There was no doubt about Vic's first love; it's been medicine for as long as he can 
remember. A close second, however, came the machine, any machine, so long as it 
had parts and complicated mechanisms. Nothing so delighted this embryonic physi- 
cian as a discussion of the merits of the dual carburetor. Music, chess, and hunting 
expeditions in pre-war Korea vied for third position in his table of preference. Ever 
ready and able to improvise, whether in lab, in class, or at parties (where he could 
be counted upon for at least four renditions of "My Sunshine"), Vic emerged as one 
of the most versatile of our budding doctors.

This suave, slim gentleman from Kew Gardens is the master of propriety. The "Count 
of Clone" with the correct knot in his tie and the "never say die" principle, is Holy 
Cross' contribution to the dental field. Clone, a stellar addition to any gathering, 
would enthrall the fair with his scintillating personality while always maintaining 
good grades. With cronies, Mannix and "Duke" Howland, Gerry was a prominent 
figure about New York and Massachusetts. In future days, when he assumes his prac- 
tice, Gerry will remedy his patients' aching teeth with skilled hands, a quick 
smile, and pleasant nature.

"Long Tom" was a connoisseur of all good things from Shakespeare to potato chips. 
His dead-pan humor often kept him up 'til dawn engrossed in some rollicking Vic- 
torian novel. He was a first class Canasta player, and a past master at games of skill. 
His liveliness when awake, more than rewarded the expenditure of time and energy 
which was required to get him to that state. His refined hilarity and complete gener- 
osity drew friends to him from all sides. His manner of coping with difficult problems 
in Philosophy class constantly astounded his fellow students.

Personality came to the hill in the shape of a wrinkled gabardine suit, a shadowed 
chin, a guitar and a broad smile. He was "John," or "Wang," or "Shave," and had 
no disliking for beer and no little ability at mathematics. He saw the humor in every 
situation and in everyone's idiosyncrasies, inrftsdrng his own. He gave the appearance 
of being happy-go-lucky, but was serious about the right things. He could likely be 
a successful politician, but he won't, because in his own way, he would rather be a 
good math teacher than a V.I. P., and a good friend rather than a solver of the world's

To say Robert was one of the more colorful personalities on the Hill is a euphemism. 
His inherent sense of humor and his seemingly inexhaustible repertoire of jokes 
warranted countless command performances. Many a dying evening was resurrected 
through this casual comedian's histrionics. His enthusiasm sustained in the serious 
vein also. The intricate and at times tedious details of marketing, distribution, and the 
like failed to faze him. The same zeal made his presence conspicuous in intramural 
contests, and benefited almost every organization. Master of himself, Bob was a strong, 
commanding, and — most of all — colorful figure on the black-and-white background of 
daily life.

In our short time at Holy Cross, we met few men who were so thoroughly pleasant as 
"Willie." A vibrant mind and a warm spirit were only part of his story; firm, lasting 
friendships with "Twitch," "Jer," and many more formed another phase. But per- 
haps generosity was the outstanding quality of this Southern Gentleman. Add to this 
a soft smile and an aura of strength, and you have begun to know him. His memorable 
"Purple" poem on Father Proctor's death was a most eloquent tribute to a friend. 
Bill combined proficiency in sports and accomplishments in studies with a quest for 
humor which led him to the center of all activities.

A "captain" is one who is qualified to lead others because of great natural ability and 
amiability. Our baseball captain, Jack Concannon, played his part to perfection, both 
on the diamond and on the corridor. A sobriety of purpose, coupled with an intense 
desire to overcome difficulties, kept Jack going perpetually in quest of his "Holy 
Grail" — the most he could acquire from sport or study. A business career vied seri- 
ously with his Louisville Slugger for the top spot on his hit parade, but it looks as if 
he might combine the two.

A voice was heard in the rooms of Fourth O'Kane. A man of strong convictions, his 
tenacity tempered by his casual wit, had begun his ascent to a place of prominence in 
the informal corridor seminars conducted by the Class of '52. The voice of "P.J." 
Connelly, raconteur par excellence, scholar, and proponent of disciplinary liberalism 
echoed constantly in the halls of Holy Cross. Years of training on the golf links of 
Long Island gave Paul the professional form with which he stunned the turf-riders of 
Pakachoag and Green Hill by consistently "breaking a hundred." It was, however, 
his refreshing combination of lively imagination and common sense, that made "P.J.,"

From Springfield to Mount Saint James and the "Fabulous Four," came Jack "Joe" 
Conroy in the fall of 1948. From then on, whether it was in the caf, or at the NCAA 
in New York, "Joe" was continually in the company of "Ace," "Claude," and 
"Rosie," the constitutive elements of the "Gruesome Foursome." Though an ardent 
sports follower, he maintained a Dean*s List average. The fall of senior year put an 
end to Joe's travelling career and he settled down to join the ranks of the "married 
men." A man of many qualifications, Joe will meet with nothing but success after 
his departure.

The Cooney family may indeed be proud as another generation leaves the Hill, this 
time in the person of our beloved "Coon." Behind a neat attire and conservative 
manner, John hid a friendly and generous personality. His rugged six foot frame spent 
many an afternoon tossing a javelin, grabbing rebounds off intramural backboards, 
and pushing a reluctant "Bessie" up Linden Lane. John never neglected his studies, as 
a glance at the Dean's list will show, in working toward the field of law. Both aca- 
demically and socially that field of law will enfold a true Holy Cross gentleman.

"Go West, young man!", offered Horace Greeley as a formula for success, but Bob

Holy Cross. A member of the Glee Club and Choir, he blended musical talent with a 
flair for journalism to pen a weekly column for the T'Hawk, on the activities of the

Known for his unselfish assistance to any and all, Dick entered the hearts of all who 
came in contact with him. Although work and studies occupied a great deal of his 
time, Dick still managed to carve his niche in extra-curricular activities. Everything 
he undertook had the stamp of his business-like manner and congenial personality. 
While all his ventures on the Hill bore fruit, Rich's greatest disappointment was that 
he didn't have time for more of them. A naturally fine character, plus a tremendous 
amount of ambition and drive, provide Dick a solid foundation for a promising future.

Wherever there was laughter and merriment, Bill was in its midst. Possessing a "hail- 
fellow-well-met" personality, he always manufactured a bit of sunshine when the 
weather man failed to provide. A firm advocate of sports, a member of the track 
team, and a Red Sox rooter, Bill wove these interests into the acquisition of a well 
rounded education. Quantico and the Marine Corps occupied his summers. The road 
along the way might have been rocky at times but without Bill and performances 
like his "Charleston" at the '50 B.C. victory dance, the sledding would have been 
even rougher, indeed.

Big hearted, good-natured, and easy going — that was George. Through four years, 
his sparkling qualities, like the sun, were always shining. When the sun didn't shine 
for us, we found the rays of confidence and cheer coming from George. These attributes 
were blended together with the necessary seriousness that any student needs in order 
to cope with the study requirements of any college. When such a blend of qualities 
is found in one man, there can only be one result: a leader and buddy admired by all — 
that was George Craemer.

Marty was the tall, personable, fellow whose elongated form, many friends, crew-cut

student and his well-informed ways (Spain or "famous quotes") kept many of our 
"bull sessions" going on high. Paul Harney and he were great buddies and could be 
seen on numerous occasions, exchanging golf "know-how" for "business advice." 
Marty was an avid sports enthusiast and really enjoyed "Pops" music. His yeoman 
duty in handling the alarm clock for Jim Ellard and "Ace" O'Malley was commend- 
able. If Marty's earnest enthusiasm and application for the job-at-hand is any indica- 
tion, his future looks pretty bright.

Refreshingly casual, marvelously even-tempered, somewhat fond of the bizarre, and 
essentially undecipherable, Bob breezed his way around the campus with the agility 
of a disembodied spirit. His rich bass voice made him a big factor in the Glee Club 
octet, but it shone even more noticeably when he lounged about the dorms with his 
guitar on his lap. A good man over the high-jump bar or amid the Cross natators, his 
natural modesty sometimes was laid aside for some of the most outlandish stories 
uttered to date, though you could always spot that his tongue was a bit in his cheek. 
His attitude was unconcerned; but you knew that Bob was interested and competent.

as evidenced by the fact that his name constantly graced the Dean's List. However, 
when pre-med pressures permitted he participated in his favorite sport, basketball, or 
ardently rooted for one of the varsity teams. His respected opinion was heard on a 
variety of subjects. Jack was an unassuming, diligent worker who always had a sin- 
cere willingness to help others.

Modesty and quietude were the "Cull's" trademarks. Even his closest friends had to 
wait until the papers hit the streets to learn of his appointment as captain of the 
defensive platoon. The highest tribute that could be paid to his vicious tackling, sharp 
blocking and strong running was accorded him when Doctor Anderson tabbed him 
"my best all-around player." Combined with this love of sports was his devotion to 
Father George Higgins' political science courses. Through their influence, Cull de- 
veloped an inquiring interest in what makes the government tick, and a leaning 
toward the legal field.

"Mr. Chairman, Reverend Fathers, Worthy Opponents ..." these words became a

counting cadence on the drill fields of Pensacola. Frank was a real sport and, "the

Serious books, poetry, and the New York Times, coupled with an ardent love for the 
cinder path constituted the greater part of Jack's college career. An army veteran 
before entering Holy Cross, he was ready at any time (preferably after midnight) with 
a dissertation on life in Japan, and presided over many lengthy symposia on the rela- 
tive merits of time spent in the service. His activities and his abilities were varied, 
but the former never exhausted the latter. Fall, Winter and Spring would find this 
sprinter perfecting his style under the tutelage of Bart Sullivan. In all, Jack was, in- 
deed, living testimony to "mens sana in corpore sano." Enjoying, rather than dread- 
ing study, Jack was truly "the wise and prudent athlete."

smile. Bob enjoyed the Cross and Worcester, from the Sheraton to Linden Lane, and 
left with the realization that upon reflection, four fine years is really but a moment.

the high scholastic standing he steadily maintained. His prodigious vocabulary was

moment to exert itself. A steady sharpshooter on the intramural basketball teams, he 
was a grear competitor. Our human alarm clock, who amazingly found a maximum

realize his easy friendliness. Despite the high demands of a rigorous Math Course, 
John could always enter a discussion of social and world affairs. For him these dis-

Splash! — and Bob Dicck, a former National Prep School Champion, was back in the 
"tank," flashing arms and legs churning a white wake as he stroked to another vic-

with fins and slept in a fish bowl, but except for a slight webbing of the metatarsals, 
Bob was a normal, happy-go-lucky college man. A pioneer in founding the first Cross 
swimming team, Robert became her most prolific point scorer and trophy snatcher, 
and justly, her unanimously chosen Captain. Out of the water, Bob was a well-man-

at the wrong time, yet somehow he always managed to come through unscathed. 
Chuck should always be on top. Why? An alert mind, fertile imagination and, above 
all, an eager zest for living.

From the Merrimack Valley, came the little man with the large saxophone. A devotee 
of Charlie Barnett's band, his love for music led him naturally to the Music Clubs. 
Autumn found him in the football band, and spring meant the Glee Club tour. Odd 
moments found him with Jack Treanor, discussing plans for an approaching Regis 
dance or shaking the wrinkles out of their much-used tuxes. Endowed with an analytic 
mind, Jack distinguished himself in sophomore year when he became Section N's 
expert on the Knapp- White Murder Case. He was a rare individual to whom life was 
a pleasant challenge, an experience to be lived to the utmost.

"Anything worth doing at all is worth doing well." This familiar saw adequately 
depicts John's attitude, for he was a man whose every effort was characterized by neat- 
ness, efficiency and honesty. The painstaking precision he demanded of himself in any 
activity or project earned for him the admiration and respect of everyone. His athletic 
ability, effervescent personality and unfailing loyalty have made John a model for his 
innumerable friends. In the classrooms and laboratory we have all marvelled at the 
accurate and orderly work he so conscientiously produced. His earnest application 
and intense desire for improvement were lessons by which we all profited.

Though carrying top weight of seven or eight well-thumbed texts, friend Robert 
amazed the campus by setting the track record for the mile-and-one-sixteenth 
from Wheeler to Alumni. Never before in the annals of the college has one student 
carted so many books over so much territory. In his own private "study," (third alcove 
on the left in Dinand,) Robert rested between his pell-mell dashes by acquainting him- 
self with the contents of the aforementioned texts. In conversation the "gentil" Robert 
would somehow always let slip the secret that he hailed from Clinton. Weekends 
Clinton and its social whirl claimed him, but weekdays Robert worked well at the 
full-time job of college.

Energy, both physical and intellectual, characterized Jack Doolan. This quality 
combined with a steady purpose and a remarkable ability for self expression, served 
"the doctor" and Holy Cross well. He worked at the job of college as hard as he 
played at its games. His love of company and conversation led to the confidence of all 
who knew him. Jack's appearances on the tennis court and the golf course were bal- 
anced by participation in dramatic productions and public speaking contests. The 
absolute sincerity of this man brought him to a high place in the respect of Holy Cross.

In answer to demands for "lights out," Buffalo Bill always countered with "Just a 
few minutes more; there are just a few things here I have to check over." This is one 
example of the thoroughness with which this carrot-top prepared for daily class or 
final exams. All work and no play would have made Bill a dull boy, and Bill was far 
from dull. Spring and fall afternoons found him burning up the turf of freshman field. 
His greatest relaxation, however, came with an evening's interlude of classical music. 
Red's trademarks were a shining smile and a booming voice — they did not belie his

"Have no fear, the old Dad is here," was the typical greeting we received from Bob 
around the campus. On the football field it was No. 41, our own Mr. Inside, who, 
with bobbing head and churning knees, carried it from the ten to the ten — and let the 
laurels fall elsewhere. Nor was the studious Haddonfield Flash ever plowed under with 
his studies, for he knew his way through the books too. In the blue days before finals 
or the bright nights before vacations, Bob's "social call" did much to "develop an 
atmosphere of cordiality."

"Early to bed, early to rise" is the secret of Bob's happy disposition, which always 
pervaded the company he kept. Although Bob was from the "backwoods" of Rhode 
Island, he was never one to limit his sphere of activity. On different occasions his 
Irish grin was seen in the distant cities of Boston, New York and points west. Bob's 
only source of real concern were the grey hairs which a fertile imagination harvested. 
But, grey hairs included, there were few things which could dampen his spirit or 
squelch his ability to make others enjoy themselves. The combination of sagacity, 
savoir-faire, and social graces was Bob Doyle as we knew him.

"Nickie Dru," the Bomber from Belmont, was an enigma to nine-tenths of his asso- 
ciates, but posed no problem to his friends. An extraordinarily sober exterior he pre- 
sented to the world, but, with his intimates no more genial guy could be desired. An 
avid follower of the "flicks," Nick set attendance records at the Worcester movie 
emporiums. Not the type to clutch up before exams, Paul was loathe to overtax his 
constitution with long hours of study, but always "got the matter up" sufficiently 
to maintain a creditable average. He had a tremendous creative flair that should prove 
very valuable as he braves his way through the business world.

The ultimate desire among men born with ability, intelligence and ambition is to 
accomplish what others consider impossible. George fulfilled that desire. As Track 
Manager, George took the tedious business details from Bart's shoulders; under his 
surveillance, the team tripled in size; through his founding of the Intramural Track 
Meet, general interest in the sport was revived. Our evening of evenings, the memory 
of memories of the Class of '52 — the Junior Prom — was a Ducharme Production, the 
finest dance ever staged on Mt. St. James. There is no more eloquent testimony to 
George's genius for organization, than his election as our chief executive, our Senior 
Class President.

Originally in the class of '51, Jack left to try his expert hand at professional baseball. 
After having made quite a name for himself in the Virginia League, John returned to 
the Cross to complete his studies. His chief interest and major topic of conversation 
upon his return was his very charming wife Dorothy. Jack's friendly nature and 
charming smile made him many friends among his new-found classmates and insure 
success in his chosen field of endeavor.

"Trouthe and honour, freedom and curteisie . . ." — a Chaucerian phrase in summation 
of Phil, a Chaucerian scholar. Phil captured our minds and hearts because he was big — 
big in heart whether working, playing, praying, or just chatting. Unmatched in his 
friendly ways, and well-schooled in the art of gratitude, Phil went out of his way to 
help others. A job in his hands was always done better than you hoped — a tribute to 
his zeal and capability. Endowed with a winning smile, he met each day with a 
twinkle in his eye, and made it his business to pass it on to someone else.

Jim was the fellow we welcomed into "bull sessions," as he possessed a rare ability 
for inserting color, fool-proof solutions, and controversial conversation, whether it 
was current events, politics, sports, or women. His interest and knowledge of sports 
ran high, with football and basketball taking the spotlight. System and "sharp" 
clothes were two of Jim's better known trade marks. His aptitude for scholastic attain- 
ment and scholarly pursuits was verified quite emphatically by his recurrent presence 
on the Dean's List. Jim's easy-going personality, combined with enthusiastic applica- 
tion to his work, should carry him as far in the coming years as they have in the past

"Don't clutch" . . ., words Mike said a thousand times over. But he was always ready 
when it was time to "get the matter up." A connoisseur of classical music, he was 
ever there when the subject came up for discussion. Winter nights, and Easter vaca- 
tions found him on the road with the Music Clubs. Early in the morning or late at 
night Mike was always the best of company. His happy-go-lucky manner and unique 
ability of chuckling witticisms made him a priceless personality. Not typical, but an 
outstanding friend, was the man from Ridley Park.

failed to cheer the heaviest heart, a greeting that brought a smile to the glummest 
face, are parts of this jovial fellow. "Teep" had his own unique way of doing things, 
but he always managed to end up on top. His room was the social center of the cor- 
ridor, and his home a haven of hospitality for countless Cross men who were stranded 
in Boston on a so-called "Big Weekend." Bob will be remembered for his participation 
in a host of extracurricular activities, but more especially as a true friend.

Don came to Holy Cross with a firm purpose in mind, and he dedicated his entire 
stay at the Cross to the pursuit of it. To obtain a Catholic education, and prepare him- 
self for a future in medicine, Don worked with a zeal seldom matched. A tireless 
worker, he still had time for a good laugh, and his sharp wit often took us by surprise. 
We shall always remember Don for his firm determination and affable manner, and we 
are sure he will leave the same impression on his future friends.

One of the rarities of modern athletes, Jack was one of the best-known football players 
on the Hill. A tackle of immense proportions, Jack will take his name alongside such 
former Crusader standouts as George Connor and Ted Strojney, as one of the finest 
tackles in Holy Cross history. But as ferocious as he was on the field, "Toe" was as 
much a quiet, unassuming gentleman off the gridiron. He had many friends and de- 
servedly so, for his Irish wit and penetrating smile were innate characteristics that 
demanded them. Jack's talents knew no bounds; neither will the success that he is 
destined for in the future.

Monday morning class withstood, Jack repaired to the caf to regain his wonted com- 
posure. There, over a cup of Brazilian economy, he related in quiet tones his "quiet 
weekend." A man of many accomplishments, meeting him was a new experience each 
time. The fruits of a classical education, and extensive vocabulary and a talent for turn- 
ing clever phrases, were generously shared with many campus organizations and 
thankfully exploited by the "Patcher."

greater heights in the ensuing three years. Always with a ready smile, a smart crew- 
cut, and a cheery greeting, he typified the strong silent type. Frequently he could be

home substantiated his avowed liking for the "big city," although many campus

From Bach to biology, Russian to Chinese — this dark-haired student cultivated an 
amazingly wide field of interests. Languages were his forte. For the ordinary man, the 
German and Latin he tangled with in course would have been enough; for Joe, seminars 
in Russian and self-taught fluency in — of all things — Chinese came naturally. That a 
love for opera was in his blood can be understood, but that he should find time to 
indulge in his pastime nightly is a bit bewildering. Yet, no Dean's List ever slipped

His diligence at study, and the conscientious way in which he tacitly dispatched his

disposition. Ed leaves Holy Cross with our confidence in his continued success.

David J. Finn, rechristened "Mickey" upon his arrival at Mt. St. James, has in the past 
four years provided more than his share of good humor to the gatherings in which he 
flourished. His casual off-hand manner, maintained from dawn to dusk, enabled him 
to meet and vanquish any and all obstacles with tranquil complacency. Although a 
devoted patron of certain downtown activities and a frequent companion of Morpheus, 
his academic endeavors were never slighted. But Dave really shone as the sparkplug of 
the Sweeny, Dieck, Finn trio, which etched not a few episodes of Crusader social 
history. The place won't be the same without this carefree Jerseyite.

Up here at the Cross, Jack was one of the most popular men to be found. His ability to 
make and keep friends was just one of his wonderful mannerisms. He had a smile that 
lifted the most disheartened soul, and we found in Jack what makes a friend a treasure. 
His unwavering principles and keen sense of fairness, coupled with a genius for organ-

on him, and found him ready, willing, and more than able to do the job. In our dynamic 
personality kid, we find the exemplar of the true Crossman.

April of '51 was a red-letter month for Bill Flynn, for then it was that he was elected 
not only to the Purple Key, but also to the presidency of the Student Government. 
For Bill, this climaxed three years spent as a committee chairman, amateur enter- 
tainer, and master of ceremonies for campus organizations. Possessing the class' most 
imperturbable disposition, this shuffling citizen from St. Louis seemed to do all his 
studying between committee meetings, while still upholding the scholarly side of his 
education. Noted for being an imitator of bath men and machinery, as well as a bare- 
foot ballplayer ("Dear God, don't make me wear shoes"), Bill made life more livable 
for us all.

This loyal "Yankee Fan" came down from Portland with a purpose in his heart. Four 
years on the Hill was little enough time to perfect the ideals and ideas he was to im- 
part to his students later on, for teaching was Paul's vocation. Prompt and firm in 
making decisions, and adhering to them with rigid self-discipline, Paul devoted him- 
self to the best in literature when not studying or on duty in the Post Office. Short of 
stature but never short of witticisms, he was a welcome asset when helping out in 
the Discipline Office. Now, back to Portland, Holy Cross sends a Crusading Catholic 
educator with a purpose in his heart.

With his roommates, "The Fole" was a devoted disciple of the midnight disputes. 
Far into the morning raged the debate (Main issues: Sports, the Marines), until 
Chuck's incontrovertible logic and scathing wit reduced the opponent and his 
argument to an absurd position. No Marine that walked in Montezuma's halls was 
more loyal to the Corps than Chuck. Hailing from an industrial city, Charlie was 
naturally alive to the problems of labor-management, and in this field of business 
administration he concentrated his efforts.

for Bart Sullivan's crew. In contrast to his aggressiveness on the football field, George 
was a quiet and diligent student, and his far reaching personality was an asset to any 
gathering. A veteran campaigner in the often turbulent politics of our class, George 
nonetheless was always a gentleman and a sincere friend.

It has been said of Jim that if ambition was the sole requisite of success, he would be 
tops in any field of endeavor. His cheerful disposition complemented his even tempera- 
ment, for Jim had a smile to offer to all, whether they had the gift of his friendship or 
not. His diligence in study found him more than able to accept a challenge, and his 
attitude of life and cogent advice helped many friends find their way out of the "laby- 
rinthine ways of their own minds." We saw Jim at his humorous best engaging in off- 
period card games. The Heart of the Commonwealth lent us quite a guy.

Direct from Hyde Park, Joe early made an impression on Holy Cross. Freshman year 
found him in the Fenwick Dorm where he soon became the all-round collegian, 
academically, socially and otherwise. Studies came easily for "Frost," whose only 
fear was Fr. Bean's exams. Otherwise Sophomore year was a tranquil one; Junior year 
an eventful one; — but during Senior year, Frost made it. Joe liked food, frowned on 
corned beef and cabbage and insisted he was Mediterranean Irish on St. Pat's day. 
"Frost," a misnomer indeed, was always eager to laugh and enjoyed every minute of it.

The light over Charlie's desk was often out at night, for in philosophic language 
Charlie's will was inclined toward other goods than study. One of the few who ever 
found Worcester and decided to keep it, "Frosty" hit the city and set it on fire with 
his enthusiasm for advertising. Evidently, the spire of the Empire state is visible from 
Ho-Ho-Kus, for Charlie can talk of advertising only in terms of "Noo Yawk." His 
allegiance to Worcester, however, is too strong to leave it behind altogether, and 
therefore he has confided in some that he hopes to bring some of it with him.

It was inevitable that Pat major in the Social Sciences; he was a born sociologist. A 
student of his fellow man, Pat's liberal outlook, and almost paternal understanding 
set straight the dubious paths of certain rabbit-eyed individuals "with their shining 
Saturday morning faces" as they crept like snails all unwilling to "clashes." Carefree 
Pat had a serious vein; a becoming modesty, true manliness, and a deep religious 
sense. Classtime was spent attentively, extra-curricular time wisely. His day was 
proportioned: the library for the books, the day-room and "caf" for "timeouts," the 
gym for physical well-being. The result, no surprise, was a well proportioned man.

Although we were proud to have this Korean veteran as a member of the class of '52, 
Bob should have been among the ranks of '51 along with his uncle (Ripley and home- 
town newspapers please copy), Pete DiCenzo.The granddaddy of our class (at the tender 
age of 28), he showed admirable restraint and patience with the oft-times boisterous 
and undecided striplings among us. Whether it was study at the library, helping the 
Worcester Club with some projected social, or ably performing his duties as adjutant 
at the local American Legion post, Bob's sincerity and earnestness of purpose were 
manifest to all.

Chick's tremendous energy and enthusiasm justifiably earned him the title of "The 
Dynamo Kid from Worcester." With his name deeply imbedded on the roster of Jack 
Barry's baseball nine, he proved to be a collegiate edition of Phil Rizzuto. In addition, 
he was active in all phases of winter sports. He was gifted with a smile that was as 
constant as his home town's weather, and which shone forth from the center of many 
of those "discussions" in the day room. As can naturally be expected, Chick intends 
to follow in the footsteps of his famous father and carve for himself a place amongst 
the ranks of teachers and coaches.

Ever since his outstanding performance against the Boston University eleven, Paul

known for his feats in football, his versatile athletic prowess extended to the fields of 
baseball and basketball as well. Not only famous athletically, Paul was also well- 
known for his sincerity and good humor. With a witty remark and a friendly smile, 
he has won a host of friends with a minimum of effort. Small of stature, big of heart, 
Paul earned the reputation of being one of the best-natured and respected men on the

Mauro, combination gentleman and scholar, by his courtesy and cheer tempered with 
modest reserve, cemented many true, lasting bonds of friendship. Constant loyalty and 
unselfishness characterized his relations with others. "Moe's" schedule, replete with 
the pre-med labs and lectures, still allowed time for aiding others in studies or, for 
that matter, in any situation. The social graces and his own inherent love for music 
were further developed by Music Club concerts and post-concert doings. Leader of a 
double life, few on the Hill saw the lighter side of this serious, maturely enthusiastic 
medical aspirant, the side of a laugh-loving fellow who got a kick out of living.

Though there is no truth to the rumor that "Herk" slept in the Dinand stacks, it is 
not difficult to see how this belief could have arisen. Any other time, if Herk weren't 
around, he was in the Library, either ferreting out elusive volumes from the lower 
recesses as a staff librarian, or off in an alcove prepping for that eternal "big blue- 
book." At no time was Herky too wrapped up in his own replete schedule to refuse a 
helping hand. A good sport himself, Herk thought every sport a good one, and played 
them all with impartiality, though with varying degrees of success.

His sartorial perfection belied his humility. Not self-assured but self contained, he was

his outlook on life, tests, and adversity with the ramparts of his own self-confidence 
and native abilities. Dancing with a charming brunette, coffee with two sugars, the 
Dean's List, late sleep, conversation with people of wit and intelligence, a daily 
workout at the small gym, and the Glee Club were the planks of Bob's extra-curricular 
platform. A proponent of Holy Cross, he was not only objective and poised, but the 
possessor of a remarkable capacity for development.

developing his talents, he displayed his organizational ability as Secretary-Treasurer

he gained our respect; by his fastidious care in accomplishing work he gained our con-

Tom, one of our quiet ones, was always a little bit hesitant in making up his mind in 
any matter, but usually came out with the right solution. Details meant a great deal 
to him; nothing was too small for his consideration; everything was a commanding 
problem. A rule was a rule, and this meant a tie and suit-coat every day, every class. 
Through rain, snow, or shine, this earnest day-hop rarely missed a period. If he could 
walk, he was there. If you ever wanted to know anything about Shakespeare or

Meet "Irv" Gilson, the fastest man on campus. Whether dashing to Providence for a 
weekend in that notorious "fire engine red" convertible, cavorting on the cinder 
track, or coaxing a sweet solo out of his beloved clarinet, Irv invariably finished ahead 
of the others. Far from a playboy, however, Irv was a prominent member of the rabbit- 
dissecting set, and evenings found him conscientiously attending to his pre-medical 
studies. When Irv finds the time, he is a rabid baseball fan, and nurtures an abiding 
dislike for the Yankees, especially when they are playing his Red Sox. Despite his 
accomplishments, Irv's hat size has remained normal and his friendship sincere.

Jack was the big man from Albany who had a voice fully in keeping with his size. 
Being an advocate of invigorating outdoor sports, his room was cluttered with skiis, 
poles, boots, and bathing suits. In a discussion, a full explanation of the "whys" and 
"wherefores" were necessary in order to satisfy him, but once satisfied, he was eager 
to assist. He had an affinity for popular music but would at times "stoop" to the long- 
haired variety if pressed. Of a Saturday night he was known to stay on campus to 
study and retire early. He was highly in favor of a faster-than-sound speed limit for 
Massachusetts roads.

Many were the nights that the room echoed to the long and loud lament of this choice 
Chem Major. When the seemingly impossible math K.;ts loomed on a horizon already 
darkened by experiments, elusive equations et. al., Toms cheeriness but never his 
determination dimmed. Weary hours in Beaven labs and long vigils over the books 
had to be relieved — and Tom was a master of letting off steam. His views on the rela- 
tive merits of the "Corps," his own peculiar humor, those quips and puns (Grayisms) 
injected just an extra flash of humor into those inevitable "time-outs." Free afternoons 
and weekends Tom almost invariably unbended with the guys.

"I have no enemies and my friends hate me." Expressions such as this were Grim's 
trademark. He was known as a right guy from the start of his career here on the Hill

he used his prowess to good advantage as he slid back and forth to Mr. Moran's

outside activities occupied much of his time, he did not neglect his studies. He is best 
known for his Gin-Rummy and his passionate defense of the "Yankees" against Daly, 
Suter and others. A prolific letter writer he has been known to pass up a good movie 
to write a letter or two. As a member of the "Coffee and Doughnut Club" he could 
be seen in the caf several mornings a week. His famous expression, "Keep the faith," 
is probably an outgrowth of his numerous Knights of Columbus activities, which 
have profoundly affected the annals of "Crusader Council."

personality was characterized by a ready wit, a fondness for Toll House cookies, and

Paul was the guy whom we first knew for an extraordinary proficiency with the golf

any of his thirty-foot putts or 250-yard drives. His election as captain of the golf team 
and vice-president of our Junior class served as further evidence of the aforementioned. 
His continual smile, wavy hair and lusty "Hi's" were his more well-known personal 
traits. Playing cards, listening to popular music, and kidding the boys were his main 
pastimes, outside of the books. Self-determination and easy application to the job at 
hand stamped Paul as a good student and gave every indication of a successful course 
ahead, whether it be in an office or on a fairway.

on the ideal female and initiated a search in that direction. The Deacon of Dellwood

time writing term papers and delving into the theory that three can live as cheaply 
as one. In keeping with this theory, he joined the ranks of the married men on the

cheery "hello" let you know that he had arrived for another day of combat on Mt. 
St. James. The pride of the "City by the Sea" will always carry with him memories 
of many happy hours, and his friends will always count him as a man among men.

An enthusiastic midwesterner who might well be described as a prototype of ability,

as chairman of the Purple Key in his senior year. This was an honor well-deserved 
and a position fulfilled by Jim in characteristic fashion, capably and unassumingly. 
Beneath his warm grin and contagious laugh, there was always a deep sincerity. By 
the end of senior year his fame at rallies, on dance committees, and on the intramural

throng did not rise in merry song about Jim's own "Chicago."

at any occupation to which he turned, he deserved success in studies as well as popu- 
larity in social life as the outcome of his enthusiasm. Friendliness and a warm interest 
keynoted his associations with the men ; gallantry marked his dealings with the ' ' jeunes

came Bob ("Claude") Healy. A high pressure, part-time salesman, Bob maintained 
he kept Anderson and Little's going with his sales, and couldn't understand how they 
got along without him during the summer. This practical business experience was 
supplemented by "Biz-Ad" courses, especially Accounting, a field Claude hopes to

one Charles as to which of those two worthies was best preserving his girlish figure.

nevertheless made the lunch hours provide him with a good "break." After a quick 
repast, the pasteboards flew in four directions and "whist" was the business at hand. 
True to the family tradition, "Richie" shone on the diamond and on the court, where 
he displayed the same drive and determination that characterized all his actions.

After having his studies interrupted by his country's call, Jack returned to Mt. St. 
James to make himself one of the most pleasant and congenial members of our class. 
Jack could always put in a good week of studies, but when Saturday morning rolled 
around, he was usually seen heading down the "Lane" for an enjoyable week-end in 
Maiden. "Pop," as he was often called, was noted for his great sense of humor and 
he will always be remembered as one who could bring out laughs and smiles even on 
the dullest days.

A half a hundred miles a day couldn't keep "J.H.", his Chevy, or his spirits down, 
but his ensuing opinion of Massachusetts' highways cannot be printed herein. At the 
first echo of a reverberating backboard, Jack's eyes lit up. The spirits of the off- 
Campus Five soared (while Intramural opponents gnashed their bicuspids in vain) 
when "Hooks" Hession uncorked his one-hander. All was not frivolity, for John was 
a serious thinker who believed that the solution to the world's troubles lay in a proper 
study of the past. A pedagogical propensity led John into about every education course 
in the college, and out again with valuable knowledge assimilated for future use.

Reversing the famous words of Horace Greeley, Tom headed east for his education and 
became the 1952 Illini State ambassador to Holy Cross. Sparked by an aggressive 
character, a result of that healthy western climate, he proved his mettle on the intra- 
mural gridiron and basketball court as well as in class. A sincerity leaving no question 
of doubt was an earmark of all his endeavors. The Tomahawk recognized his capa- 
bilities, and capitalized on his tireless interest in journalism. Continual devotion in 
serving those early masses and attendance at Sodality spoke well for Tom, a man 
whose abilities will reflect on Holy Cross in the years to come.

Up from the Connecticut Valley came "Hug" to lend his color to the Hill. Noted for 
his hearty laugh and incessant search for a bit of humor in any situation, he cheerfully 
made his way through that gauntlet which is a college education. He summed up his 
success in studies with the saying that came to typify him, "Don't Clutch!" Intramural 
sports were part of his curriculum, from the standpoint of conditioning and good 
fellowship. "The Old Hug," with his unforgettable "cool ones," made many lasting 
friends in his four year tenure at the Cross.

Recognized in any crowd by his crew cut, his angular features, and most of all by his 
contagious spark of enthusiasm, Lem distinguished himself through unselfish devo- 
tion to college activities. "Hill business" was a must for him. Not confining his talent 
and efforts to the Worcester Club alone, he, believing that Student Government was 
everyone's job, threw himself, his administrative ability, his time, and his enthusiasm 
into the functions of that organization. Class elections found this Student Government 
Vice-President presiding in parliamentary manner. All this he accomplished despite 
the rigors of a pre-dental course. Uninhibited Lem hit it off with everyone, everywhere, 
all the time.

With a brisk, determined strut up Linden Lane every morning, Dick would wend his 
way to the Chemistry Library for an early bird's brush-up before the day's activity. 
That stride reflected the attitude of determination to overcome obstacles, an attitude 
which won him admiration from all who knew him. This veteran, a sagacious miser 
of time, settled in the task of revivifying the faded impressions of math and chemistry, 
and by diligent effort forged to the fore. His personal sincerity drew forth many 
friends. Endowed with the gift of a precise mind and agile hands, he is well-equipped 
for the great task ahead.

"Joe," Red Bank's gift to Mount St. James, was best known for his amiable disposi- 
tion, personified by a pleasant "Hi" for everyone on campus. An avid sports enthusiast, 
Joe followed the New York Yankees and the New York Knicks, and many an evening, 
"after lights," Joe kept his ear glued to his powerful little Philco to pick up the fading 
minutes of play. Often working with the sketchiest material, he always whipped up 
the perfect pre-game feature for the Tomahawk. Scholastically, Joe loved his Shake- 
speare and Chaucer. The sports world awaits a fine journalist, a fellow who will work 
because he loves work, not because he has to work.

Thirty lines of Virgil, paragraphs from The Second Spring, a soliloquy from Hamlet — 
on graduation day John could still recite these without hesitation, without misquoting 
a single syllable. His prodigious feats of memory amazed the less gifted. This elephantine 
memory, supplemented by bulldog perseverance and uncanny powers of concentration 
left John with a cool head and calm nerves on exam morns. Living proof that good 
things don't come only in small packages, John was athletic and agile. The mobile 
mountain used his height and weight advantage (sometimes his elbows) effectively on 
the intramural court. Like most large men, John had a huge heart and a limitless 
capacity for friendship and camaraderie.

Most can't; some do. Jim was one of those few fortunates who was successfully able to 
ration his time appropriately between the art of studying and relaxing through the 
medium of athletics. A member of the elite Pre-med group, "Horsh" was consistently 
on the Dean's List. In addition, he proved to be one of Coach Bill Luby's most potent 
racket wielders and a consistent Intramuralite of All-Star calibre. In his off-moments, 
Jim was able to cram in either a quick nap or a fast hand of bridge. His quick wit, 
ready smile, and winning personality have won him many friends.

One of the better known off-campus students, Bill could always be counted on to en- 
liven a dull class or bull session with an interesting, if slightly unorthodox, line of 
reasoning. An enthusiast of the great out-doors, Chevrolets and week-end trips south- 
ward, he never forgot his first love, horses. As active as a perpetual-motion machine, 
Bill could always be found trying to entice some of his more sedentary friends into a 
little golf, basketball or tennis. Despite his riding weight of 104 pounds, in his ideas 
Bill was truly of Bunyonesque stature.

A personality needing no introduction is the "Duke," whose humor and wit have 
caused much merriment on the hill. Whether the situation required a "life of the party," 
a conversationalist, a scholar, or just a friend, Duke filled the bill. His congenial dis- 
position and carefree nature were well known in Cross activities. The Duke starred in 
intramural basketball and each year helped his team reach the finals. With Cloney and 
Mannix, the "Duke" was a prominent figure in New York and Massachusetts society. 
His salesmanship ability plus reputation as Kimball's finest waiter testify to his busi- 
ness acumen, which talent, cannot help but make the Duke a successful business man 
and a credit to Holy Cross.

When Steve first trekked the lanes of Mount St. James, he traveled in continual danger 
of being ejected from the campus as an impostor. Since those freshman days, his baby 
face matured to some extent. Yet the unexpected flashes of humor that accompanied 
it were still very much in evidence. A silent partner in the class-room, his perennial 
Dean's List rating attested to his scholastic "know how." Athletically, despite his 
avoirdupois handicap, the "Steva" played a head's-up brand of basketball, and per- 
formed flawlessly in the softball infield. Essentially of a shy nature, his camaraderie 
and loyalty carried us over the dark spots, and enriched the light ones.

with the display of his talents such as the piano, song and humor. His dearest aspira-

Bill's knack of being a happy-go-lucky, easy going lad one day and a serious, con- 
scientious scholar the next, made him a veritable paradox. When the pressure was on, 
Bill would disappear into the quiet confines of the library. But when things eased up, 
he would relax, run up to the gym or spend a couple of hours in the caf. His 46 points 
in an Intramural basketball game, which broke a long standing record, drew attention 
to him early in his Freshman year, and his infectious smile and unassuming manner 
rapidly widened his circle of friends. Affable, sincere, and good natured, Bill will 
long be remembered by all of us.

Serious in studies, carefree towards life, Bob developed a dual personality. Rare mo-

This unique unorthodoxy was the subject of much speculation by his friends. A 
Worcester social function was nothing until Bob arrived on the scene to put his official 
stamp of "good time" on it. The many times his assistance was sought by sundry 
college organizations proved his classmates recognized and appreciated his selfless 
attitude and his ability to bring home the bacon.

Les began his college days after two prosperous years in the U.S. Navy. After struggling 
with the Worcester transit system for a few years, he moved on campus to acquire more 
amicable acquaintances to his growing list. With quietness as a deceptive trait, he was 
ever an appreciative audience for another's humor — and was equally appreciated for 
his own ability to occasion a good laugh. 

Les' varied interests ranged from the music of Milhaud to desperate rooting for 
the Bosox. Of keen religious sense and persistence in the pursuit of his studies, Les is 
destined to continue the tradition of the Cross.

England during his stay on the Hill and remained loyal to his native Buffalo. A stickler 
for perfection, he always felt that there was room for more improvement. A methodical 
worker, he displayed a keen sense of values in all his undertakings. If effort and ability 
are any criteria of a successful college career, Carl's stay on Mount St. James has been 
highly noteworthy.

Monk's promptness and quick pace set the tempo in his pursuit of studies as well as in

first in the dining hall. Hailing from the "Progressive West," his great interest in foot- 
ball often brought our attention to the finer points of line play. Add to this an avid 
fondness for reading pocket books and magazine serials, coupled with a love for 
bridge, and you have Monk. This fine balance explained the compatability which was 
always his trademark, and which made him welcome in any group.

If there was any one man at Holy Cross who kept the bookstore in the black by buying

(Any of his victims will testify to that). Although Kam spent many long afternoons 
on hilltop proving grounds during his four years at the Cross, he always found time

Bronxite remained loyal to the Giants and finally had his loyalty vindicated. He never 
needed encouragement when someone mentioned bridge or any other card game. 
Behind all his nonchalance, there was a keen, razor-sharp, and ever open mind. The 
apparent ease with which this lad attained his high scholastic rank was an application 
of his theory of getting the most done with the least effort.

but in conformity with his good nature, Jeff accepted all with a feigned front of solem-

as a debator he expressed determination and self-confidence, and as a student he proved 
himself with Dean's list recognition. With all his seriousness, Jeff was not above a

notorious "French horn" kept him continually, but good-naturedly, at its defense.

he slept little, ate irregularly, but got all the matter down. If Dave didn't know it, it 
wasn't in the course. But when he relaxed — look out! He played as hard as he worked. 
Weekends he'd sharpen the Kiernan humor and head for Boston and the hospitality of 
various "Hub" institutions. A bruising intramural lineman, he was famous for the 
pre-game comment: "We'll murder those freshmen!"

"There are two Tom Kicrnans"! This was the only way to sum up that dual per- 
sonality of "T" — a quiet serious student and a lively carefree person. With a passion 
for precision and consistency, "T" was the unfazed optimist of the pre-med section. 
A reader and a thinker, known for his unerring and sanguine predictions, Tom never 
let his sedate trend obscure the light and, at times, ludicrous side of life. Officially a 
member of the Albany Club, Tom was actually the unofficial humorist of many a 
Hartford Club party. Whether "situation-frivolity" or "operation-Biology" — Tom 
was the master of it and of himself.

Perhaps the best-known day student in the college, Frank became the most efficient 
and successful of liaison officers. No one ever gave more fully of his time and energy 
for the class as a whole and in countless acts of generosity. Always willing to do a favor 
or arrange any activity, Frank managed to blend his definite organizational ability 
with the fulfillment of his scholastic duties. It was his capacity for understanding, and 
his tireless desire to help that made him a keystone in all groups, whether scholastic 
or social. Frank King, as organizer, "hustler," or all-around pal, was an indispensable 
part of the Class of 1952.

"A King's name is a tower of strength." Thus Bill cements a lasting impression on his 
realm, Holy Cross College. A wonderful tyrant; when speaking, heard; when advising, 
respected; when met by seemingly unsurpassable odds, a master of his "subject." His 
throne — the day-hop room — quiet at first, then shaken by shouts of his prerogatives; 
his court — the perfect audience — plead him on with laughter . . . this peer of panto- 
mime. Bill, lord of Marlboro, defender of Marlboro-ites, and keeper of the keys of 
Anna Maria College! A big man. Every inch a King!

If you ever needed a cigarette, some ink, or a few dollars to tide you over for the 
weekend, the Stan was the man to see. Being carefree and studious at the same time 
was no problem to him. He burned the midnight oil on many a night to prepare for 
an exam the next day. To learn his interests — take the Red Sox and Toronto Maple 
Leafs, stir well to the beat of a good polka and throw in a crossword puzzle for season- 
ing. Being just another "regular guy" was Stan's greatest care. His ability to mix 
with any group with ease was undoubtedly one of his greatest assets.

Who said that? "The Kleiner" said it, and how he said it! Though the last to describe 
himself as a history maker and an enricher of languages, Pat has added perceptible 
gems to Holy Cross legend. With the intuition of a private eye, he could tag people 
and situations just about where they needed tagging. His quips could accomplish in a 
sentence what pages of exposition could not. A man of his own opinion, and possessed 
of a keen mind, Pat became one of the philosophy prof's major antagonists on the 
Hill. He wandered through Chemistry and its problems, and the boys wandered into 
Pat's room for the answers.

Maturity can mean lack of enthusiasm and interest; not the case with Frank. Everyone 
who knew him, and many did, sensed his dry wit and logical approach to the problems 
that sent others off on emotionally partisan tangents. A quiet worker who spent long 
and tiresome hours smoothing out rough spots in the Tomahawk, seeking financial 
support for WCHC, and participating in intramural sports, Frank came in contact with 
Holy Cross in a real way. He mixed the artist's interpretation of values with the 
collegian's enthusiasm for constant activity. Here was a man compact physically but 
full of energy for pursuits, cultural, athletic, and social.

Intelligence cannot be appreciated unless a man can express what he knows; personality 
is worthless if he cannot convey it to others; imagination is productive of nothing if 
he does not transmute it into creative power, into the concrete. For four years the 
cosmopolite from Bangor eminently succeeded where others failed. For four years of 
brilliant work, the Dramatic Society and the Outing Club, WCHC and the Career 
Research Associates owe him a debt of thanks for a job incredibly well done. What 
others could not do, he did. He succeeded and drew innumerable disciples, for he util- 
ized his intelligence, made his imagination tangible, and, above all, he expressed

Bob lived almost in the shadows of Holy Cross, so the college claimed his heart long 
before he was officially one of her undergraduates. Bob was one of the industrious and 
serious Worcesterites among us; one of those often seen, seldom heard fellows. He 
tackled the business course with the avid enthusiasm characteristic of aspiring ad- 
ministrators. His studious habits and persevering manner were well exploited facets 
of his personality. Though Robert didn't get down on the gridiron and physically mix 
it with the Saturday heroes, he was always with the Crusader teams in spirit and 
suffered and gloried with the rest of us from the stands.

A world traveller by virtue of what he calls his "three year pleasure cruise in the 
Navy," Ed survived the lure of Georgetown and chose Holy Cross. The decision re- 
sulted in frequent excursions to the Capitol which often left his future here in serious 
jeopardy. He accomplished the transition from service to college with comparative 
ease, a fact proven by his consistent appearances on the Dean's List. While studies 
played the dominant role in his college life, nevertheless, he was always ready and 
willing to fill an intramural roster. Life went smoothly for easy Ed, for he rolled over 
the rough spots.

osophy regarding the college man's life, during those protracted sessions in O'Kane — 
the Day Hop Room. Studies continually maintained their position as his prime aim 
during the past four years at the Cross, as evidenced by his marks, which prove him 
above average. On the athletic side of the ledger, he was right up there with the best 
of our intramural basketball players. The courts were a favorite haunt after classes, 
while waiting for a ride home from a fellow traveler.

"Look, let's get logical about this!" was the constant and welcome theme of the 
quondam charter member of the Second Alumni Social Club. Lee's pithy common 
sense and logic were well known to the more frivolous of his confederates here on the 
hill. He managed to cover up his strict devotion to duty with an admirable non- 
chalance. Lee was one of those rare few whose innate generosity prompted him to pre- 
fer bankruptcy rather than refuse a friend. Whether jesting with his cronies, pacing 
the clean-up crews, or conning his constitutional law, Leon was above all a gentle- 
man and a friend.

Always in a hurry, Tom's boundless enthusiasm was a source of wonder to his asso- 
ciates. Completely immersed in whatever interested him, he often lost all track of time, 
working far into the night on some facet of the Purple Patcher, a role in a Dramatic 
Society production, or a new idea for one of his radio programs. This energy, a part of 
Tom, pervaded everything he did, including his many social activities. Tom carries 
away from Mount Saint James a vast amount of knowledge on many things and we 
can only say a word of warning to the world, "Stand from under; here comes a young 
man in a hurry!"

Often quiet but never dull, Bill spent the first five months of the school year talking 
about the past summer, and the next semester making plans for the following season 
at the beach. Reserved in the New England tradition, Bill was content to sit back and 
watch life roll by, but when a question arose he never hesitated to express his sound 
opinion. While Bill studied with the rest of us, three-man football was his favorite 
pastime, and the "Commodore" directed his famous trio to many victories. Like the 
popular melody Bill leaves lingering refrains behind on the hill.

Hemingway made up in quality for any lack of quantity. Noted for his flowing, silver- 
streaked mane and cardigan jacket "Muff" daily haunted the caf and the Worcester 
Public Library. He numbered among his constant companions Joyce and Yeats of the 
literary world while Bob Marrion and Paul Roy of "Raoul" fame were usually seen 
at the dinner table with him. Beneath his caustic witticisms and cynical attitude 
Don couldn't quite conceal the fact that he more than appreciated what he had re- 
ceived from Father Mears' "Lit" classes and the Cross.

With a heart as big as O'Kane Hall, Tom entered the College on the Hill and quickly 
became one of her best-liked sons. Possessing the rare ability of effortlessly combining 
enthusiastic play with serious work, Tom was a "natural," whether in an inter- 
corridor football game, a shower room song, a take-off of F.D.R., or a discussion of 
world politics. A gigantic stature, a hearty laugh, a friendly nature, and a sparkling 
personality were elements that made up the big moose. When we needed a man to serve 
us well, we named Tom to be our Senior Class Secretary.

"Anyone for bridge? — How about heading out to the links today?" — such were stock 
phrases of the kid from Pennsylvania. One of the Navy's outstanding supporters, John 
bolstered the unit's pistol team with his uncanny marksmanship. His strong smile, 
indicative of a pleasant nature, was a "must" at any social event, and gregariousness 
was one of his more easily known characteristics. Wrestling found its place in his 
spare time, as did activities at the Senior House. near Indian Lake. Along with his 
entourage of friends John was equally at home in class, on the dance floor, on the 
athletic field, or in that college stand-by, the bull session.

Whenever Holy Cross needs a loyal son to lead her purple banner, Greg will always 
be there in the front ranks. The memorable "March on Worcester" and those precision 
capers before the football band were the pride and joy of our baton-twirling friend. 
Of course, pre-med studies were always important to this lad with the gay, easy smile, 
but they never crowded out a personality that reached out to include everyone on the 
Hill. The spark of many a party, Greg always had a tune on his tongue, yet displayed 
that dignified naturalness which is a Holy Cross heritage.

and wit made him a welcome asset in all groups. The keen interest which he developed 
in his pre-medical course lightened the burden of his long hours of study. Life at Holy 
Cross was made more enjoyable by Vin's presence, and he will make Holy Cross proud 
of her adopted son.

Thanks to Bill's business acumen, and his ambition, many of his classmates walked 
the campus better shod. Though his thriving "factory to you" concern never gave 
Florsheim any sleepless nights, it helped finance many, many, fabulous weekends. His 
proficiency with the poker deck never hurt his bankroll either. Bill first attracted our 
notice as a crashing end on our Freshman Football team, but his Gaelic warmth and 
humor were the qualities which attracted us into his legions of friends. William wasn't 
only interested in our feet; anytime anyone needed anything, there was room in Bill's 
heart and usually the means in his hands.

Efficiency and moderation characterized all that Dan undertook. As the last of four 
brothers at the Cross, he left the distinctive Lyons trait of sincerity and a host of friends. 
He coupled his long strides with a relaxed manner and combined the rare qualities of 
an aggressive and pleasing personality with a firmness of conviction that marked him 
a worthy companion. If the unquestioned ability to attract people and the persistent 
aim for the best that life can offer are conducive to success, Dan's future rests secure.

"Dennis Lyons." That name became a synonym at Holy Cross for a vast storehouse of 
knowledge, marshalled and put to use with wonderful talent. Here was the man whose 
frequent appearance in the Purple, outstanding success in the B.J.F., and a consistent 
spot at the head of the class brought him to a place of real prominence. But Dennis 
was no bit of cold officialdom. He was ready and able to discuss anything from poetrv 
to politics, from baseball to "being as such." Intent in his every activity and a good 
judge of men and ideas, Dennis Lyons has been and will continue to be one of Holy 
Cross' prides.

"There is a great ability in knowing how to conceal one's ability." This maxim 
readily applied to Todd, an unassuming individual of much more talent than he would 
have you know. His easy grasp of philosophy and all subjects might be discovered by 
a perusal of past Dean's Lists. Coming to Holy Cross after two years of Army service, 
Todd won admiration by his scholastic achievement and easy going manner. He could 
always be relied upon to complete a foursome at bridge or an intramural team. Todd 
will be remembered not by any one characteristic, but by his many manly traits shown 
in everything he said and did.

Bill could relax anyone with a moment or two of his own philosophy spoken in his 
own inimitable manner. New Jersey's greatest protagonist, Bill could also be found 
expounding on his number two geographical love, New York City. Never one to sub- 
mit to worry of any kind, Bill had an outlook on life that was a tonic to the many 
close to him. The good "doctor" always had an expert opinion ready for every sport 
from baseball to horse racing, from "The Yankee Ball Club" to "Sheila's Reward." 
"Billy O" left an indelible mark on his classmates.

varied assortment of cars, none of which lasted more than a year. However, all that 
was changed at the end of his Sophomore year when Don took to himself a wife, 
settled down with one car, and left the others to repose in the back yard of his Shrews- 
bury home. His hectic schedule did not hamper his attempts to break down the "tin- 
foil curtain" which supposedly separated the day students from the resident scholars.

ball. His invasions into the field of photography brought forth many chuckles. Gene 
was also a noted author; his letter-writing part of the daily Mann routine. Gene's 
bodily physique was as solid as a rock, but with him it went a good deal deeper than 
just the human frame. His personality was refreshing, genuine, touched with a wonder- 
ful simplicity and enriched with a deep-grained, manly faith.

Known around campus for his quiet manner, Bob was nevertheless a dexterous fellow 
who boasted a rather unusual background. Service in both the Merchant Marine and 
the Army Airborne in his pre-Cross days rates him a place of distinction in the class of 
'52. Choosing the A.B. Math course with English as his major, Bob was also regarded 
as a serious student. Whether he was toiling for Jack Barry's nine or relating some of 
his famous stories about "Jump School," he made a lasting impression. Bob's scholas- 
tic determination and all-round achievement are good indications of what can be ex- 
pected of him in the future.

"A man who will go out of his way to help anyone ..." Perhaps these words best de- 
scribed Johnny. An ardent follower of all Cross sports, as well as a fine athlete, he was 
an enthusiastic supporter of school activities. His keen sense of humor was matched 
only by his high sense of values. A mainstay at any social gathering, John could 
always be counted upon for attending the nearby tea dances. Many fields are open to 
him, but no matter which he chooses, we know that he will succeed, being a credit 
not only to himself but also to Holy Cross.

a tribute to his strong personality that everyone with whom he came in contact

with a degree of efficiency that commanded — and rightly so — our supreme confidence. 
As Chairman of the Outing Club Board of Trustees, he fathered the club through its 
most fruitful years; as Pre-Medical Director of the C.R.A., he supplemented the pre-

Jack hails from the fair city of Worcester, and was one of the most popular day hops 
because of the unassuming confidence that was his. His conquering personality and ease 
overcame everyone who met him, and if riches were measured in friends, he would have 
been the Rockefeller of Holy Cross. Active in all sports, social activities, and collegiate 
affairs, Jack led the way towards lighter moments whenever studies allowed it. Con- 
scientious, hard working, studious — these were but some of the qualities found in 
Jack. His natural leadership will guide him toward greater heights in the future.

Jim Marran — the man who always seemed to be in a hurry — because, "Time is not to 
be wasted." Maybe he never actually proclaimed that motto, but all who knew him 
agreed that it was apropos. Of course, studies invariably came first, and this lad 
who hails from down in DuPont country — he'd never let you forget it — established 
squatter's sovereignty on Dinand Library. Whether it was disc-jockeying over 
WCHC air waves, acting as Student Government and class officer, or just discussing 
the problems of the day over a matinal cup of coffee, Jim was always one to be re- 
garded as a serious thinker, organizer, and 100% supporter of every Holy Cross

An embryo-navigator from wave-lashed Winthrop, Bob moved in the Cross nautical 
set. As a member of the select group of welkin-ringers presided over by Chuck Dolan 
in Kimball Hall, Bob exercised his powers of wit and extemporaneous debate. It was 
a neck-and-neck race between Bob and a three year roommate, Don L. (on whom he 
hung the permanent cognomen of "Muff") to roll up the highest mileage on the 
Worcester Pike. His rule was business before pleasure always, but when not hitting the 
books at Dean's List pace, Bob chased basketballs around the gym. Even envious 
draftees saw hope for the future with responsible men like Mister Marrion on the bridge.

"Here comes Hot Rod(ney)!" — a cry of mingled delight and alarm. He projected his 
permanent pixieish half-smile into those places where angels and crusaders fear to 
tread. Jack was our scholarship lad; a staunch defender of the "no-clutch" theory 
who became a dreaded ogre to those still embracing the outmoded "cram" doctrine. 
A lover and student of Irish history, he tried his best to live up to its traditions, ex- 
emplifying the famous racial characteristics, both as a charter member of the "Saki- 
Circle" and as an honorary fellow in UConn's fraternities. And finally, who will ever 
forget the "million-dollar" investment — the '41 Chevy Hook Shot extraordinaire?

To most of the men on the hill, Gene was known as the astute young business man

to his friends and associates, Gene was a lively and good natured fellow, whose ca-

Perhaps the truest characterization of a college football captain could be found in our 
own leader — Mel Massucco. An athlete who, at all times, maintained the traits of good 
sportsmanship and the airs of a gentleman, "Muzz" was the type of leader who in- 
spired. The "clutch" back of the highly-touted Crusader back-field did not, however, 
limit himself to the gridiron. A gifted speaker, Mel, along with Johnny, Tom, and Bill 
made innumerable guest-speaking appearances throughout the New England states; 
besides which, he headed his own sports show on WCHC. An ardent student, Mel 
always found time to delve into the "52," for a quick game of bridge or hearts. Judging 
from his past, his future will be crammed with undisguisable success.

They called him the "Roman General" in Sophomore Year and Frank was just that 
type. An unsung footballer, Frank found his place in the sun as Jack Barry's regular 
third baseman — equally adept at the "torrid turn" or swinging for extra bases. He 
knew his sports, and won many a free haircut with his shrewd Yankee bets. Socially, 
Matrango, the demon of the dance-floor, was checked only when his ever-loving room- 
mate arranged one unforgettable blind date. Furthermore, this lad exhibited a mellow 
baritone voice for the corridor's entertainment, while the famous Matrango-Massucco 
card games gained traditional stature.

Changing horses in mid-stream is supposed to be a dangerous proposition, but Harry 
performed this neat trick (from St. Michael's to Holy Cross) and somersaulted right 
into a Dean's List rating besides. Neat tricks were second nature to "Deals"; he always 
had an angle to circumvent obstacles. Driving ambition kept him pressing at full 
steam even though he was already at the top. Philosophical discussions, day or night, 
were opportunities for expressing sound ideas, exhibiting a nimble intellect, and, when 
tempers flared, of bringing into play his contagious humor. He chose to lose his point 
rather than his sense of humor; the argument, rather than a friend.

From the town of five thousand women — for whom he could never find time — to the 
Hill of Happy Springs — for which he spent many a night looking — Dave wended his 
way into our lives. Ever loyal to his beloved Red Sox, ("Wait till next year!"), he 
thrived on arguments ranging from pennants to philosophy. Who can forget the fabu- 
lous "Merc" and its equally fabulous trips to Dartmouth and Yale, or his very own 
pet phrase "Keep your nose clean, kid"? Although never one to forsake his studies, 
he somehow managed to become adept at manipulating the pasteboards, to the dis- 
tress of his opponents.

Unassuming John was possessed of that rarest of gifts — that of being a good listener. 
His inherent courtesy, an outgrowth of his natural gentlemanly character, forbade his 
interrupting another, and this plus his wealth of knowledge and his intelligent, co- 
gent expression made it a pleasure to converse with him. An unfortunate injury left 
John with a deceptive knee, and nipped at the bud an athletic career that showed 
promise of really bursting into varsity bloom. A firm believer that one teacher is worth 
a company of men, John has concentrated on education and philosophy, intending to 
impart the latter to youth, by means of the former.

Along with many others at the Cross, Bob hailed from Springfield's Cathedral High. 
Interested in history, he immediately showed his worth with the books, as any Dean's 
List will clearly bear out. When classes were over, Bob could often be found perched 
on a piano stool giving out with some popular tunes, or strumming his uke amidst 
an aggregation of aspiring baritones. A loyal follower of the Purple teams, he could 
also be depended upon for the latest scores and batting averages of the Boston Red 
Sox. After that last stroll down Linden Lane, Mac intends to turn his talent toward 
graduate school and the teaching profession.

Here was a man who was truly a concrete representation of the combination of athlete, 
scholar and gentleman. Undoubtedly one of the greatest offensive ends in Holy Cross 
history, "Cyrano" received mention on practically every one of the post season Ail- 
American teams. But Tom was even more famous for his ever-present smile, firm hand- 
shake and undisguisable sincerity. He exhibited an outstanding sense of determination 
which will insure his success in future years of coaching. Although other great flank- 
men will come and go, Tom will always head the list — not only as an athlete but as 
a gentleman.

One of our eminent day-students, Al set some sort of record for consecutive hikes up 
the Hill. This cheerful gent, though somewhat of a campus rarity, put in four fruitful 
years as an English major. However, Al's forte was music, and he was one of the few 
who belonged to the football band, orchestra, and Crusader dance band at the same time. 
Taking everything in stride, Al combined a full schedule and a heavy list of extra- 
curriculars with those ever-welcome weekends at home. A hard worker and a great 
pal, Al was, in his own quiet way, a good man to have around.

Known as "Easy Ed" simply because his disposition invited such a tag, "Mac" came 
to the Mount by way of Williston and Worcester Academies. In the fall, this amiable 
giant added two hundred and ten pounds to the Doctor's beef trust, and especially 
delighted in levelling it against our chums from Chestnut Hill. In the summer, the 
"Defender of the Braves" staunchly seconded every move of Tommy Holmes and de- 
fied all American-leaguers. A course in music appreciation almost converted Ed to the 
ranks of Opera lovers, but not quite. Whether presiding over a First Carlin Bridge 
game or grabbing fumbles in the Sugar Bowl, Ed was always conspicuous by his

Phil's membership in the select clan of "Vanishing Americans" at Holy Cross i.e. 
the Physics Majors, testified to his prowess with the books. His claim that Philosophy 
is best assimilated over a steaming cup of coffee still stands. Social and extra-curricular 
activities centered around the Music Clubs, where for four years he held down the 
baritone horn position, although his "junior tuba" was the brunt of many a joke. In 
sports, football was closest to his heart, but there was the day on the courts when he 
sunk a one handed push from mid-court. "It's all in the wrist," was "Ace" McCarty's 
sole comment after the crucial contest.

Did you ever know a biology major who could sleep before finals? Tom could; in fact, 
he could sleep during finals. Since he spent his summers on construction work, he needed 
the winters to recover his energy, and he recovered best on the horizontal. Although 
this schedule occasionally conflicted with the mandates of the Discipline Office, it 
worked wonders on his lab technique and helped produce a budding scientist. No 
slouch at sports, Tom kept trim by playing long, calculating games of checkers and 
cribbage. Powered by his big grin and sociable by his nature, Tom could be counted 
on when there was "something doing."

A lean, dark, handsome lad constantly dressed in the conservative collegiate fashion — 
flannels and reserved ties — Ed was that quiet young man whose sometimes unrespon- 
sive air was occasioned merely by the hour of the day — it was either too early or too 
late. But after a check of the mail situation and a few paltry victuals, he quickly be- 
came the good natured, easy going student everyone knew him to be. Although he- 
was more conscientious in his studies than most, he was an occasional participant in 
the "hard cards," — often in the midst of a genial gathering with "the gang," but his 
principal pastime and interest was situated beyond the Catskills in Poughkeepsie.

"Mac" — the inevitable nickname, was one of the more illustrious day-hops on the 
Hill. A Vernon Hill product, Mac spent much time admiring the scenery and breathing 
in the healthy air around St. Vincent's Hospital. When not tied by bonds of duty to 
the books in his favorite Dinand alcove, Mac escaped to the gym with his "partner 
in basketball," Dick Nolan. John was a jovial joker, and Wietecha, Milliken, and 
Castellino were the principal targets of his verbal thrusts. John's natural intelligence 
was a gift which he put to the best possible and most practical use.

Although there were few more ardent Crusaders than Kenny, his heart (and person) 
were never far from his beloved Chestnut Hill home. A "sleeper" in regard to latent

classes, and his performance at the Junior Jamboree. It was the regret of the campus 
when his fine left arm came acropper after a most successful freshman year with the 
Fitton Field nine. Always a gentleman, Ken made his unbelievable Irish charm, coupled 
with his New England friendliness, serve him well, and gain for him the respect of a 
host of friends.

Perhaps it was his summer on the Cape with "Jersey Jerry" Sheehan that really

adjective — happy. His approach to everything was always from the lighter side. He'll 
be remembered for his love of sports, especially basketball, his hearty appetite, taxi- 
service to New York, opening day at the P.D., his keen appreciation of jazz music and 
his willingness to join the boys for a few lagers at a moment's notice. His performance 
on the hardwood was always aggressive and on many occasions it was his drive that 
sparked the team. With his happy-go-lucky way, he enjoyed life to the fullest.

him attentive listeners in the small caf. His intelligent understanding made him a

in attitude, he was a firm supporter of the five and a half day work week, and after a 
week spent slaving over a hot desk, Bob unveiled his ability to use a weekend to full 
advantage. A trencherman of renown and a self confessed world traveler since his sum- 
mer spent in Alaska, Bob even admitted there was more to this world than just Boston. 
From a Bostonian this was quite an admission.

"In math you can never be satisfied with coming close . . . there's only one correct 
solution." This was "Dan'l's" creed and he applied it universally. The greater portion 
of his time was devoted to his Major and his love . . . manipulating unknowns, but he 
equated this side of his character with an artistic sense, manifested in his flair for 
writing. He differentiated clearly between work and relaxation, but found that for 
true proportion you could not entirely subtract the latter. Therefore, he integrated 
his life with sports, dancing and music. An ardent Sinatraian, Dan's own vocalising, 
added to a winning personality, won him several local talent shows, admiration from 
the fair, and many loyal friends.

and Julius Caesar. This charter member of the av ant garde lived on the campus two years,

shuttled between Worcester and his changing abodes in Boston, Clinton and Berlin, 
but to John the "caf" was home for four years.

The calm, quick-witted Irishman from Providence was known among his Holy Cross

preparation and a minute in the operation," did not confine his talents to the athletic 
field, although he was best known for his football accomplishments during his four 
year stay at the Cross. He also capably carried his talents over into the classroom 
where he displayed the same zeal and aggressiveness which have combined to make 
him an exemplary athlete and an energetic student.

To these things he clung, and of these he usually talked during his nightly nine o'clock 
visit to the caf. Brother's dry wit and tendency for understatement which he expressed 
in a laconic manner convulsed his listeners. Though his court savvy and phenomenal 
spring brought him more than a little publicity, Bob remained the same bashful soft- 
spoken guy he was four years ago. Beneath that shy exterior was an unlimited capacity 
for friendship, well worth cultivating.

with Jack Barry, he confined his athletic talents to intramural football, basketball, 
and softball and those talents were equalled only by his will to win. A fine student, 
he could often be found spending his leisure hours in the library. "Yogi" specialized 
in active weekends around Chester Heights but his enthusiastic backing of all school 
affairs was the characteristic for which Dan will long be remembered.

was put aside for any great length of time during the past four years. Ready to laugh 
at a good joke anytime, his pantomime of one or another professor enlivened many a 
talk fest. But though an "easy goin' guy," "Mac" never spared the text books. A 
consistent and thorough worker, he was always ready to lend a helping hand, or a 
helping notebook to anyone who asked. His pleasing disposition and general good 
humor have won the tallest midget at Holy Cross many and varied friends, who will 
not soon forget his friendship.

Ray was one of the few who could take a pre-med course and still have time on his 
hands. Unfazed by blue-books, and imperturbable amid the rush of experiments, lab 
reports and other assignments, he devoured magazines, cross word puzzles and good 
books in quantities; yet somehow this unassuming fellow managed to emerge near 
the top of every Dean's List. Quiet, friendly Ray maintained that every system has its 
flaws and usually had a new and ingenious way of proving it. A calming influence 
in any argument, he delighted in campus conferences. Not one to rush, our unruffled 
Raymond's motto was . . . "What's the hurry? I've loads of time."

Charlie was a sober-faced but humorous-minded day student. He had a quiet, but not 
retiring, nature and often pepped up the bull sessions with his dry humor. With the 
eloquence of a Demosthenes he would defend his school, friends, or his jalopy. A foot- 
ball game or dance found him ready to lug any number in his car. His scholastic 
ability was unquestionable and he was always eager to help anyone not quite so 
talented. The first impression he gives is one of dignified strength, an impression un- 
diminished on closer inspection. All in all, Charlie was a man worth knowing.

John set sail in 1945 to graduate from Holy Cross and didn't let a hitch in the Navy 
interfere with the attaining of his objective. Although small in stature, his enormous 
personality made him many friends here on Mt. St. James. After each tedious week 
of studies he truly deserved his week-end pleasures. Whenever seemingly insurmount- 
able obstacles such as Philosophy or turkey for supper presented themselves, he could 
always rise to the occasion. Every Holy Cross sporting and social event was the better 
attended if John, with his quick wit, was there.

A genial manner and infectious laugh made Bill a welcome addition to any and all 
gatherings. With a decided knack for understanding and discussing, his solutions to 
problems, ranging from an interpretation of a thesis to the latest Esquire fashions, 
were valued highly by his many friends. Always ready for an argument, Bill combined 
the demands of the books and the call of a well-rounded social life with enviable 
precision. A sound golf game, summers of cruises, an appreciation of the purpose of 
college life, the ability to face life with a smile — all these ingredients mixed and blended 
in Bill to result in a college career well spent.

Amid the maze of his continually-littered desk, Bill wiled away his spare time in soli- 
taire. With slow rings rising from one of his prized Meerschaum pipes, and roommates 
rising to open the window, he could live in ecstasy with "Because" or Guy Lombardo 
rippling away. That last cigarette before hitting the sack caused him to spend many 
week-ends "on the hill." A student of anatomy and sailing, the Commodore put 
aside his beloved Biology book at the least mention of ships, ferries to Fire Island, 
canoe trips around the world, and, of course, sailboats.

Combining scholastic and literary accomplishment with an ever present wit and geni- 
ality, Ed, after three years staff experience, assumed the difficult role of Tomahawk 
Editor and turned in a very capable job. A mimic of extraordinary talent, his casual 
narrations of far-fetched events often exhausted his listeners' imagination, but never 
failed to provide clever entertainment. The fair-haired Rochesterian, though a fine 
administrator, could always be counted on for the more tedious details of the countless 
committees on the Hill. A consistent Dean's List man, Ed and Holy Cross brought 
out the best in one another.

Pittsburgh's ambassador to Holy Cross, laughing Walt, became famous for his corridor- 
shaking roar of laughter, emitted at the apprehension of anything the least bit humor- 
ous. His yearly desire to "hit the Dean's List," was tempered only by a keen love of 
fun, and his remarkable temper held up under the most trying circumstances. Weather 
permitting, Walt was the first to shout, "Anybody for golf?", and the offseason found 
him huddled over stacks of crossword puzzles. A strong man on any intramural team, 
he succumbed to the exotic life in the "frat house," "Seven Hungry Arms." Walt's 
muscles were his glory and his ambition is to become "Mister U. S. Navy."

"Mabel, come here!" This familiar cry was followed by friendly, harmless attempts 
to get chambermaid Mabel's goat. Such is a fitting introduction to jesting Joe Miku- 
towicz. His football proficiency reached its zenith in the Yale game in the fall of 1950 
with his sparkling catches. After football, Joe turned toFr. Hart's Basketball emporium 
to unleash the deadliest set in the intramural league. Relaxation was not foreign to 
Joe, either. The neighboring lakes and streams of Adams lured him on to hours of quiet 
fishing. Combine this conglomeration of attributes and you find yourself face to face 
with Mr. Mikutowicz.

"Connie" was one of the fine contributions from upper New York State to the Class 
of '52. Gifted with a pleasing personality, glib tongue, and sharp mind, his com- 
panionship was enjoyed and treasured by all who knew him. Although forsaking the 
ranks of bachelorhood in his junior year, Connie still found time for his friends here 
on the hill. He had a knack for acquiring the greatest amount of knowledge in the 
shortest possible time. A well read individual, Connie was always ready to discuss 
intelligently any subject that might arise. In Connie, the Cross graduates a true 
Christian gentleman — a man we've been proud to know.

The small, dark-haired, unobtrusive student, with the excellent artistic sense was the 
most surprising individual on campus. To the uninitiated he was the quiet little man 
whose art work decorated First O'Kane in the yearly contests (and won the prizes), 
and whose name appeared periodically on the Dean's List. His more intimate companions 
knew him as a versatile, impromptu entertainer; a born mimic, who glorified in ex- 
temporaneous impersonations of dramatic personalities; an unpredictable, bouncing, 
effervescent individual who was liable at any second to break into a bewildering 
gymnastic, or an hysterical terpsichorean performance. Sincere and generous, Tony 
was assailed by many organizations, seeking his skill with the brush, his time, and 
his good-nature.

Blending the excellence of scholarship with an outstanding athletic ability, "Norm" 
stood forth as one of the more versatile "men about campus." From his native New 
Hampshire he imported a natural skill which projected him to the foreground in 
whatever he undertook. A heavy schedule and difficult "Bio" course failed to faze 
Norm, and he continually puzzled his friends with his ability to achieve maximum 
results (Dean's List every year!) from a minimum effort. With his characteristic grin 
and quick wit, Norm found the best solution for having a good time in being "one of 
the guys."

That irrepressible, lovable "Ol' Rebel," Mitch, fairly bounced into our lives. His 
bubbling, unaffected effervescence instantly won the entire campus to his side. He so 
obviously enjoyed life, that others, as if by contagion, got more out of living with 
Mitch around. His amazing enthusiasm carried him, heart and soul, into almost every 
organization. Untiring work in their behalf made him an obvious choice for the 
Presidency of both the Outing Club and the Sanctuary Society. A boy at heart, Mitch 
played all intramurals with the same inspired drive; his trophies, especially from Intra- 
mural track meets, show how well he played. In four short years, the naive lad from 
Washington evolved into a mature man, well able to accept any responsibility thrust 
upon him.

Who would believe that that angelic countenance masked the incorrigible wit of an 
inveterate kidder? Few escaped being duped by some baseless rumor concocted in the 
unpredictable Monahan imagination. A close adherent to principle and routine, John 
took the truly important seriously; right was right, he never equivocated. His mathe- 
matical genius, prehensile intellect, and sound business sense were utilized, gratefully, 
by the Student Congress and the Patcher. A great field general, Mo's triple wingback 
formation revolutionized three man football, while his notorious "lefty hook" was 
his corridor team's secret weapon. As Captain Cleanup, he directed his forces with 
the tactical acumen of a Hannibal, accomplishing that task as all others — quickly, 
quietly, and extremely efficiently.

Four years ago, Al, after having spent two years in Uncle Sam's Navy, arrived at col- 
lege, quietly registered, and quietly took his place among the freshmen. Outside of 
Rog, he didn't seem too friendly with anyone in particular, but somehow he became 
known to a surprising number. In the classroom he parlayed the Francais with the best 
of them, crammed his way through bio and the rest of those sciences with amazing 
marks. Living off-campus didn't deter him from his goal of achievement. He never 
stood out in the gang, but he was always there. To the end his unfailing motto was: 
"Deeds, not words."

With his big Irish smile and friendly "Hi Neighbor!", Jim became an unmistakable 
personality here on Mount St. James. He had the enviable ability to solve each problem 
as it came along, and conform himself to his own motto, "Never Panic." Jim managed 
to divide his time between the classroom, intramurals, and of course, the corridor 
social gatherings. A master of subtlety, he could be counted on when the boys gathered 
for a few laughs over a glass or two of his favorite product. Without a doubt, Jim was 
a super-salesman, but the best job of salesmanship he ever did, was selling himself 
to his fellow Crusaders.

We called him Mel, Moon, Art, Bud or Bob, but whatever we called him, we knew 
him as the guy who did the maximum amount of work with the minimum amount of 
chatter or waste motion. This talented Islander ("You know Nantucket; it's thirtv 
miles at sea") became a demon typist, Purple contributor, and "pacemaker" of the 
Patcher. For Bob, military training began early as a white-jacketed commander of 
Kimball's waiters, while his spare time reading covered everything from Tolstoy to 
Fitzgerald. A part time fancier of the "Arts," and an efficiency man from way back, 
Bob managed to take the world, as he said, "cum granum saltus."

Paul brought with him to Holy Cross an intimate knowledge and love of sports, a 
yen for shower harmony, and a conviction that nothing short of his best would satisfy 
him. The freshman who could quote the daily batting averages of his favorite Cleve- 
land Indians grew into the senior who capably ran the Tomahawk' s sports department, 
and the sophomore shower-tenor became an indispensable note in Glee Club multiple

of the campus life. Tomahawk, Glee Club, and studies kept Paul pretty busy but never 
so engrossed that he couldn't extend the familiar helping hand.

"Come on, Howie, hit the deck," was the daily battle cry used to rouse the tired

while he showed his natural aptitude for adapting himself to all situations. His 
memories of four years on the Hill will include coffee time with Clara, flights to the 
Garden State, the young lover, Sleepy, Jack and numerous sundry other characters 
that roamed Mount St. James. His daily trips to Our Lady's shrine was but one mani-

Take a shot of the unique, add a dash of the unpredictable, and you had Tom. For a 
while he spent so much time in the hospital that many thought he would take up 
permanent residence there. But the brighter days found him tinkering with his Dodge 
in the hope of keeping it going long enough to get him to the golf course or back to 
Long Island. Tom was kept busy defending his Dodgers against some "unjust ag- 
gressor," or plotting a course across the Atlantic or Pacific to the satisfaction of the

From Tsing-Tao to Holy Cross is a long way for a Marine to come just to go to school, 
but that's what Mike did. An enthusiast in all sports, all-star on the intramural five, 
pitcher on Jack Barry's nine, quarterback on Gardner's town team, Mike didn't have 
too much time to waste. A devoted Holy Crossman who always flashed a friendly 
smile, he was one of the few on the hill who could call everyone by name. Famed for 
playing the harmonica with his nose, Mike was a fan of the "Harmonicats." After 
marrying his high school sweetheart in his Junior year, Mike became a permanent

allow more time to study. Many Boston campuses felt the impact of this classroom 
Aquinas. Our Shakespearean Lothario conducted a finance department of major pro- 
portions. Those weekend trips to Newton were an integral part of a bulging social

loyal service to the Kimball corps of waiters for four years furnishes adequate proof 
of that. Hailing from Naugatuck, and proud of it, he was an avid Yankee fan, with 
special admiration concentrated on the home-town hero, Frank Shea. A four year 
member of the Sodality and a daily frequenter of the chapel, Jack was not without 
his ofF-campus moments. Considering it as an antidote for a hectic week with the

"Rog" was best known on the hill for his jocund nature and cheery grin. Though ever 
carefree, his studies claimed a major portion of his college years. Still, being far from 
a bookworm, you could just as well have found him in the gym "hooping a few" or 
in the recreation hall punching the bag in an endeavor to elude "prosperity's pouch." 
In scholastic endeavors, Roger leaned heavily toward philosophy and English. His 

Eoetical interest was best exemplified by his love for the "Hound of Heaven" which 
e would avidly recite at the drop of his roommate's tray in Kimball. Sense, humor, 
and logical thought were the hallmarks of the South Shore's happy-go-lucky lad.

Giants. He constantly cried "This is their year for the pennant." He was well known 
as one of the better basketball players here at the Cross and captained his corridor 
team to three consecutive intramural tournaments. As an A.B. English major, Bert 
was an energetic student with the ability and capacity to accomplish his scholastic 
undertakings. A staunch ally during any "corridor battle," this lad always threw 
himself into the spirit of the moment with lively determination.

many offices he held while at Holy Cross and his frequent appearance on the Dean's

would leave much to be told of John. His was the pleasant campus greeting and the 
generous smile on which were founded so many close friendships. His candor and

friend from the Midwest. With a well-directed sense of values, Jim successfully com- 
bined the demands of a rugged social life with a place among the stalwarts of the Dean's

appreciated his unaffected wit, constant agreeableness, and good nature. We would 
do well to have imparted as much to Jim as he has given to us.

On World Federation, capital punishment, or any related subject, Bill could be counted 
on for an erudite opinion. But informal debating was merely a secondary avocation if 
a song fest was in session wherein Bill could demonstrate his mastery of the ukulele 
or harmonize with gusto. An occasional mountain song or a classical piece he also 
relished. Not a staid intellectual, he found spontaneous diversion in company with 
his fellow bowlers, movie critics, or card fanciers. Though an ardent booster of the 
"fairest city of the plain," Bill has finally been "New Englandized."

"De gustibus non est disputandum," said Dave, who maintained that upon this 
aphorism rests the entire basis of Scholastic Philosophy. The "little Latin and less 
Greek" that he learned was through philosophy. Dave, a physics major, found little 
in the Latin and less in the Greek, but a radio repair job or ukulele was his idea of 
living. His fetish was music in general, and Dixie Land in particular. The ukulele 
interest faded when Spring came and the Yankees hit the field. But first and foremost, 
this "glorified day-hop" lived for his weekend journeys to and from Woonsocket, the 
Paris of Rhode Island.

Garden City, New York 

When Jim Mulhall came to Holy Cross, the town of Garden City was practically un- 
known, but it soon gained in reputation and popularity as did its chief advocate. Pro- 
fessors and students alike were quick to realize the redhead's aptitude for doing every- 
thing well — both in and out of the classroom. Talented, clever and vibratory, Jim was 
an integral part of his class. His weaknesses were three man football at Keib Memorial, 
half-court games in the Hart Garden, and those Dodgers. His merits were easy to extol 
but if one particular phrase were needed to summarize his character and personality, 
it would necessarily read, "one of the best."

If anything has to be done, "Ring for the Desk-clerk!!" Our greatest Major domo, he 
was everything from Father of the Bride to laundry man. One of the few who needed 
a schedule for his many jobs, he had contacts in every club on Campus. This ticket- 
seller and organizer deluxe was responsible for many successful functions over the 
years. His bulging "Gray Ghost," streaked with war-paint, led the B.C. parade. 
Last minute dates were no trouble for the "Monster." There were T.V. sessions at 
the in-laws, cousins galore, and studies till dawn, but a versatility unequaled on 
campus was mainly responsible for his overall popularity.

Here was a man whom few knew, but those of us who knew Bob regarded him most 
highly. A shrewd master of Psychology, he was one man who never seemed to wince 
before the onslaughts of Fr. Dowling, and on many occasions he proved to be the 
complete master of the situation. Ever loyal to Western Massachusetts, Bob spent most 
of his time in that vicinity; but not so much, that he was totally unknown — as the 
members of the Outing Club will attest. His versatility, good-humor, and social 
protocol will assure him of a successful career in the future.

Frank was a man in full command of himself and the situation. Just pride in accomplish

Frank. The amazing formula of relaxing before exams left the crammers with heads 
shaking but Fenwick secretaries never skipped his name when listing the Dean's fair-

small feat) while "Ben Hogan" Murphy scorched Wachusett fairways. From his 
eloquent pen flowed many a masterpiece, masterpieces which delighted professors, put 
green envy in less gifted breasts and made him the obvious selection for Literary

Somehow Dick reminded you of the western cowboy. While not exactly lean, this 
rawboned, loose jointed giant had that same hardy ruggedness that comes from con- 
stant physical exertion. Beneath that case-hardened frame beat a fighting heart . . . 
and those two qualities made Dick an awesome figure backing up Dr. Eddie's defensive 
line. Dick's weekly trip to Medford after a busy Saturday afternoon was his favorite 
relaxation. He was the typical, genial, admirable type of ball player — yet he was 
something more, a remarkable individual — who played ball as he made friends — for

A man who knew everyone and whom everyone knew, "Turk" led the list of the 
Worcester "Who's Who" on campus. Sporting a permanent smile, he would inject a 
stimulant into any conversation and his sharp wit was welcome at any gathering. He 
was a keen analyst of sporting events whether on the court as basketball manager or 
in the armchair picking football winners. In spite of his athletic prowess he was not 
averse to the muscle-straining endeavor of book opening. Friendship with Murph, a 
man of good sense, was a good investment.

The "Chick" from Chicopee — with his inevitable green jacket to prove same — was 
one of the denizens of the Dorm whose various and sundry escapades became '52 legend 
before freshman mid-terms. Meetings of the "After Class Coffee Club" saw the "old- 
timer" relating those triumphs which somehow seemed to grow with the years. St. 
Andrew's itself never had a more enthusiastic follower of the Scotch invention. Spring, 
Summer, and Fall, from the last snow till the first, Chick never let his driver or putter 
cool. But when Winter halted this latter day Bobbie Jones, he wasn't adverse to 
"swishing" a few "just to show the boys how it's done."

An old adage refers to silence as being golden, and in Bud, that golden quality was 
manifest to the greatest degree. Always ready to partake in an open discussion, but 
never one to make hasty decisions, he often became the steadying influence for his 
loquacious companions. Though he was not one to be disturbed when at his books, 
Bud was interested in most sports, and liked to talk baseball, or more particularly the 
Chicago Cubs. A good student, Bud's most pointed interests are centered on the field 
of medicine, wherein he hopes to follow in his father's footsteps.

Home cooking and a softer sack enticed Jack to Chestnut Hill on weekends. For the

baseline as a sophomore and became in the next two years, a stout racqueteer for 
the tennis clubs. A meticulous person, Jack regulated his time carefully to use fully 
every hour. That this practice paid off can be testified to by his consistently good 
marks. Jack's pleasant laugh and familiar "Hi there" were welcome additions to any

when a friend was in need. A diligent student, he could be counted on to hold his own

as a good index of his ready wit and humor. Those fortunate enough to look over his

Challenges in pinochle were a matter of personal honor with this mild, soft-spoken 
Vigorniian; they were never to be ignored. A few fast hands over the *'caf" or "day- 
room" tabletops usually sufficed to reestablish his preeminence in that pastime. Even 
when things looked dark, Rich was there cheering the Crusaders; he never missed a 
game. Rich got in the game himself in the various intramural leagues, sparkplugging 
dayhop aggregations to victory laurels. A conversationalist who commanded atten- 
tion, he artfully blended seriousness and humor in his talk. A student of diligence, a 
gentleman of distinction, a friend of warm sincerity, Dick possessed all the qualities 
desired in any person.

Bob spent four fruitful years at the Cross amid an assortment of pre-law books, ash 
trays, and the famous Massucco-Matrango card games. "The Senator" took his legal 
studies seriously: though often "snowed with work," he never failed to shovel him- 
self out each exam time. A sharp dresser whose only weakness was those lurid neckties, 
Bob was a soft-spoken, methodical worker who knew how to hit a deadline without 
fail. Somewhat renowned as a socialite, "Noley" gloried in his weekends, and his lively 
adventures entertained roommates for hours. Few were as friendly, none were more 
generous than Bob Nolen.

The combination of an inquiring mind, a great range of interests, and an exceptional

a keen wit and a nimble tongue, talents which coalesced to produce a brilliant conver- 
sationalist, Mike exhibited his enthusiasm in everything he undertook. Majoring in 
education, he acquired an array of useful knowledge, and proved his talent by appear- 
ing on the Dean's List. Mike loved athletics, and was often seen cheering the "Cru- 
saders" on Fitton Field. Here was a true sport with a wealth of friends.

From out of the West to Holy Cross came the fourth of the famous O'Boyles. A pre- 
med student by avocation, but fundamentally the prototype of the well-rounded college 
man, Bob knew the formula for the best mixture of academic and social interests. A 
casual approach and a nonchalant manner belied his frequent presence on the Dean's

for the approaching Saturday, and New York weekends became legendary with this 
master of the artful exit.

A broad Irish grin and a deadly push shot "a la gauche" aptly describe our boy 
"O'Bie." Unique in the fact that he was the only varsity athlete in Pre-Med, Tom 
found Sophomore Year and Father Bean an uphill struggle all the way. His rigid 
adherence to an almost inhuman schedule during those days of Tacitus and the "Second 
Spring" was a source of wonder to all. While his weekends were usually occupied with 
flying visits to Boston and New York, "Obe" was never too busy to pick up the weekly 
receipts from his lucrative "Campus Cleaners, Inc." Here is a lad who really put 
Scranton on the map.

Bob was the laconic type; in fact, he was the quietest man on campus. One of those 
rare individuals who did not believe in aimless chatter, Robert practiced an unprece- 
dented economy with his words. When he did speak, though, his pithy remarks were 
worth hearing. From them, and from many baleful glances, we gathered the impression 
that the nickname "T.R." did not please him, that the American League was an in- 
ferior creature, and that the Braves were the team of destiny. Over a cup of Frances' 
and Clara's brew, or in the inevitable evening gin rummy session, Tom relaxed his 
reticence, and parried humorous thrusts with the skill of a "Maitre de repartee."

The familiar bellow of "Hey, Moose!" often rang across the campus in quest of the 
big fellow from Holyoke. This good-natured Irishman, boasting an inextinguishable 
smile and a booming Gaelic voice, gained fame as an originator of "nicknames." 
Despite his intricate endeavors in the realm of philosophy, Chris subscribed to the 
universal dictum, "Stay loose, Pal" — advice which he often gave to pressing and 
depressed pre-meds. To Moose the failure of the Sox was inexplicable — "There's dirty 
work somewhere!" His over-generous "Forget it," when thanked for many favors, 
and the water-melon smile he flashed are but a few of the points of a remembrance as 
refreshing as his individuality.

his battle-cry during spring and summer. For two years, the T-Hawk office was the

"Rocky" blended joviality and common sense with an Irish conviction that would 
explode at any minute, only to subside an instant later in a hearty laugh. Consistently 
on trips home, he always returned with stars in his eyes. He was famed for the "slightly 
strained" tales told with "tongue in cheek," tales which enthralled more than one 
gathering in Fen wick. By no means a one sport man, he attained his greatest fame not 
on the athletic field, but at the Rector's banquet, where, by smoking a cigar, he re- 
ceived notice (in the form of a worried glance) from the Rector himself.

Pat's reserve and nonchalance were sometimes misinterpreted, but there was no 
doubting the genuineness of this friendship. A discriminating gentleman, his sense of 
propriety was reflected in his impeccable manners, his clothes, the neatness with which 
he kept them and his room, and his regulated way of living. A silver tongue with a 
razor-sharp steel edge made him a formidable adversary in debate. Assignments were 
prepared fastidiously, and scholastic reports repaid him for expended labor. Through 
the long winter, Pat read omnivorously — (Chesterton and Aquinas) but he longed for 
Spring, sunny skies, his beloved golf, and the Prom season.

Jesuit tradition of the well-rounded man.

sought the limelight. Not completely devoted to hard work, John made the "dirigible 
hanger" atop Pakachoag one of his favorite haunts. There his twisting one-handers 
and feats of ball handling drove opponents frantic. Unfailing friendship, generosity 
and caution marked his noble, sincere makeup. His ability to win confidence, and 
his knack of putting others at ease stemmed from his own easy, confident personality.

Genial "Ace" could usually be seen cavorting around the "Caf" each evening, ac- 
companied by the other members of the "Fabulous Four," possibly discussing the 
latest accounting problems. Along with his active participation in the intramural

Ohio, Jim's curiosity was fascinated by New England and her natives. Enjoying what

respect over many a cup of coffee in the "caf. " Relatively small in stature, he proved 
that he was a "Big Man" on the intramural basketball courts, and convinced his team- 
mates that "good things come in small packages." In the annals of social history he 
has niched quite a place; if there was ever one man on the Hill that could get a date 
anytime, without strain, it was Bill.

A veritable Aeneas in determination was our Richard. No matter what he undertook 
to accomplish, the result was faultless. In the library, during his free periods, Dick 
could be found engrossed in philosophy, biographies, novels, and, in fact, any subject 
in book form. Beneath this seriousness, however, was a friendliness and an unexpected 
sharp sense of humor that few people possess. Dick seemed to have a joke on every 
topic or situation that arose. He was secretary of Le Ccrcle Ozanam, and an accom- 
plished French linguist. His qualities made everyone who knew Dick at Holv Cross 
like him.

That amiable young man with the friendly and quiet ways, that casual gent who strode

but few could do it. His perennial baseball favorites, the Giants and Yankees, were 
the topics of many heated conversations, while as a member of the "Winless Worcester

George, the country-gentleman, the perfect picture of physical and moral well-being, 
glided placidly through nerve-wracking schedules and never missed the Dean's List. 
Nothing got under his skin. Everything he accomplished, making a "slam," racking 
an "A," breaking 80, was done with his amazing characteristic ease. An incurable 
linksman, the sight of George stowing his clubs in his Bel-Air became part of the 
campus scene. He loved sports for themselves as much as he loved to play, and un- 
selfishly gave his time as intramural referee. When he put aside his whistle, unlimbered 
his passing arm, or unleashed that unstoppable hook, he scored again, as everywhere, 
with ease.

and the strains of his magic accordion often overcame the opposition of the most 
hardened of prefects to corridor jam sessions. All signs point one way for Johnny, the 
way to a distinguished career in medicine.

Joining in the spirit of the Cross, he soon changed his colors from Navy blue to Royal 
purple. His seriousness in studies bore out the old adage that careful preparation pro- 
duces the best results. Good looks, fine clothes, and a knack to be seen with the 
loveliest were fortunately his. In basketball Dick managed to win the respect of oppo- 
nents while tallying for the "Winless Worcester Five." If capability and initiative are

When Shea's famous omnibus arrived on campus after the hazardous trip from Leo- 
minster, the most unperturbed passenger it carried was our David. Usually it carried 
him close to the "back-room-caf, " where he daily dominated the cafeteria debates, 
often defending both sides of the proposition with equal conviction. The gent behind 
the big "hello," his hallmark was an ingratiating personality and an impeccability 
of dress, external indications of the gentleman we knew him to be. No bookworm, 
but always there with "the matter," Dave will be remembered for his humor, for his 
warmth, and for the omnipresent savoir-faire which was his alone.

Jocular John, a March hare, surrounded by an outer shell of deception and turtle-like 
casualness, was a man who quietly accomplished great things. An extrovert by nature, 
John manifested a tinge of shyness only in Greek class. "J.C." possessed a deep love 
for Holy Cross and time and time again this pet topic entered his conversations. A 
Hartford weekend never failed to put him in the mood for tackling another week. 
With an eye to a future in law, John will have to watch his goal for a few years from 
the top of a Navy bridge.

A maximum result with a minimum effort — we all strove for it, but here's a fellow who 
achieved it. He always made the First Dean's List without much effort. But no one 
can say that "Lud" ever wasted time. When he had a free moment he used it, and usually 
he used it to sleep. Only one thing could rouse Lou from the arms of Morpheus — a good 
meal, preferably German. Lou made friends with his easy manner, and kept them with 
a nature that can only be called "Rauchenbergian."

A Troy D.P. who ended up in Hartford, George Reardon was one of the quiet, but de- 
termined lads who could be seen emerging from the catacombs of lower Beaven. George 
believed and practiced the student's right of complaining loudly of tests and deficiencies 
in the "system," although his average belied his pessimism. A pre-Med student, 
George could be seen on any Spring night gleefully plying his trade at the expense of 
straying June Bugs. Many a meal at Kimball was enlivened by spirited debates punctu- 
ated by flashes of cutlery to emphasize salient points. A rare combination of good 
humor and seriousness of purpose, George earned the respect and admiration of all 
those with whom he came in contact.

Jack represented the zip, zing, zang and zoom of college life. He was the hot shot, the 
wise-guy, the go-getting student who neither had a counterpart on the Hill nor needed 
one. His steam-roller personality along with his spontaneous smile and compelling 
vigor quickly attracted a fine and intimate group of friends. Determined and self- 
reliant, the "Bear" has attained his every goal, educationally and socially, on the 
Hill. Displaying unique ability in every intramural sport, Jack contributed greatly 
to many victories. A feeling of certainty cloaks Jack's whole person, singling him out 
as one of the men "on the way up."

In our Junior year the class received from St. Michael's College an outstanding student 
in the person of Paul. Their loss was our gain. Continually ranking among the top 
members of the class, he allowed his interest in tennis and other outdoor activities to 
be second only to his studies. The motto "First things first" was applicable to every 
phase of Paul's stay on the hill. He did not let his field of concentration, Sociology, 
be limited to the classroom, as was evident from his earnest participation in the various 
college activities. Paul's character earned him much respect; his personality, many 
friendships; and his brilliance, high hopes.

The Scarsdale Lochinvar found that the taste of that Dartmouth weekend never left. 
A professional chauffeur, his purring limousine limped nightly up Linden Lane only 
to lean against Alumni. "Lefty's" reputation for blind dates was legendary. Never 
hesitating to tutor the less fortunate, he helped many to make the Dean's List. Private 
conferences with Mr. Miller were a monthly occurrence. A strict disciplinarian, he 
kept every rule of Freshman year. Driving lay-ups that landed in a hospital bed were 
all in the line of duty. No faster man rounding third, the horse in the Wellesley woods 
was the lone cause of worry to this monarch of the cross-word puzzle, in his college

Nonchalance and versatility joined hand in hand, enabling Bob to get along under 
any circumstances. Never at a loss for the proper word, he enlivened many a conversa- 
tion with his sharp humor and witty retorts. Easy-going and generous, he was a wel- 
come addition to any group. With numerous hours spent in lab and plenty of work in 
preparation, Bob nonetheless found time to participate regularly in extra-curricular 
activities and intramural sports. Considering the many facets of his well developed 
personality, it is evident that Bristol has good reason to be justly proud of its repre- 
sentative on Mt. St. James.

Ed has that unmistakeable stamp of a gentleman. Characteristically combining a 
tolerant personality and amiability, he placed a welcome repast of laughter on the 
toilsome road to scholastic education. He displayed an intent interest in class activities, 
especially those that pertained to Worcester proper. Having a marked ability along 
social and scholastic lines, he has derived from his courses the goals of any college 
training, a wealth of erudition and a host of friends. Having fortified himself with 
Catholic character, determination and personality, Ed emerges from college for the 
battle of success, both infinite and finite, in a world of vicissitudes and intolerance.

Music struck the keynote of "Will's" personality. He was equally at home on the 
golf course, filling cavities with Spalding Dots, or before a Steinway, tickling the 
ivories with "dizzy" fingers. Bill's advice gave the key to aspiring musicians, and cut 
many strokes off fellow linksmen's cards. Willie (Hoppe) Rochford became Brother 
Pill's chief nemesis over the Rec Hall pool tables, and often sent that worthy seeking 
soothing sedatives for his own wounds. The music of the man, his repertoire of old 
favorites and new Rochford originals, that hilarious off-hand manner of understate- 
ment, and his rapid fire delivery made Bill, in more ways than one, music to our ears.

Energetic in all that he undertook, Paul made an impression that will not soon be 
forgotten. His happy-go-lucky air characterized all his lighter diversions and a keen 
interest in the field of music provided substance for many discussions on the artists of 
the field. Athletically inclined, he was a keen competitor in the intramural leagues. 
Paul exercised the same zeal in studies and maintained a fine record throughout his 
stay at the Cross. As a four-year man in the Knights of Columbus and the NROTC, he 
rounded out a fine education that points to a most successful career.

"Sig" was an ardent student who was always prepared to lend a helping hand. Music 
and the New York Yankees were his pride and joy. His eager interest in government 
and public administration was surpassed only by his glorification of the Air Force. His 
relaxation consisted in debating philosophical problems and theories with anyone 
who dared step into his abode. "Sig" was one of the few students who could look 
completely comfortable while still managing to get things done. Everyone will agree 
that if "Sig" takes his future work in the same stride as he did at the Cross, he cannot 
help but be successful.

A strong advocate of the old saying "Home Sweet Home," Jim was seen almost every

nimble southpaw spent his afternoons up in the gym or down on the baseball field. 
Whether hitting the books in the library, in his room, or other odd spots, Jim spent 
many a late hour trying to soak in knowledge before dawn. But an inherently volcanic 
nature soon informed the whole corridor when Ryan wasn't studying. His application 
to hard work and his boundless energy left Jim well prepared for his chosen field of

trip to the NCAA games will not soon be forgotten. John's only mistake was a long 
and enthusiastic backing of the Boston Red Sox. Because of the fact that he married

If we were to attempt to summarize all that was Emmett, it would be best to say that 
he was truly a "cultured gentleman." From the first moment of acquaintance through 
years of friendship, the attributes of a gentleman and the qualities of culture were evi-

knowledge and grasp of literature with us. It was a shame that most of us had no like 
opportunity to share in his encyclopedic storehouse of music lore. Emmett came to 
college with a standard and a purpose; he retained the standard and fulfilled the

years. After sophomore year, he took an active part in many extra-curriculars, but he 
was especially proud of his work in the formation of the "Southern Tier Club," to 
which he devoted the greater part of his energy. Leo was a hard worker in school, and 
such energy as his cannot but earn its own reward.

When one heard the pseudonym "Babe" around campus, it brought to mind but one 
person — Larry. Noted perhaps for his resemblance to the great Valentino, our Captain 
Adjutant from LaSalle Military Academy combined a winning personality with a 
desire to go along with anyone, anyplace, to win a prominent place among his class- 
mates. Whether chasing motorboats on water skiis at his beloved Bayville, or making 
his weekly pilgrimage to the "Blue Goose" for spaghetti, Larry never forgot his prime 
aim here on the Hill, his books. His Beau Brummel wardrobe, plus the everpresent 
smile, have left a mark on us that will forever keep the "Babe" in our fondest memories.

us Easterners. A firm handshake pointed to the warm friendship Jim extended to all

A boy who thrived on hard work, Bill never stopped running from morn till night.

Versatility is a word which best describes this senior. A Dean's List student, and an 
avid intramuralite, "Golden Throat," as he is known to the "elite," still found time 
to lend his fine tenor voice to the close harmony of the octet, and to the fuller tones of 
the Glee Club. Occasional afternoons in the Recreation Hall found him downing all 
opposition at table tennis, for his agile ability with a racquet won him school and 
national honors. If friends be any criterion of success, success will be his, for his easy 
going yet sincere manner have endeared him to professor and student alike.

of the whole picture. A true student, Ed's adept use of the pen won him the position 
of editorial editor for the "Tomahawk". He came to Holy Cross, and he became a part 
of Holy Cross. He left Holy Cross and Holy Cross was a part of him.

Although noted for his taste in music — western and classical, his interest in bridge, 
and his afternoon strolls around campus, certainly his most popular diversion was to 
be ensconced in his dorm room, reading from famous novels or historical tomes. With 
history as his major, Paul has supplemented his classroom activities by participating 
in history organizations, panel discussions, and inter-college discussions. While pur- 
suing his work in the teaching profession, his scholastic competence and enthusiasm

Eds, Myles, and Cliff, he could be seen in smoke filled rooms either explaining life in 
Erie, Pennsylvania, deciding the fate of the world, or dabbling in some campus elec-

"Saratoga Jack" Sexton was indeed one of the more fabulous characters on Mount 
Saint James. Entrepreneur par excellence, either of programs, candy, or left-handed 
monkey wrenches, Jack brought anything worthy of his interest into full-fledged 
activity. A horse fancier of no mean judging ability, he was captivated by anything 
even remotely related to the animal; even a horse opera hypnotized him. His business 
course suited his tastes to a "T," and application to these studies was an easy matter. 
Although Linden Lane did not replace the Saratoga turf in his affections, there was a 
fine mutual appreciation silently evident between the Cross and Jack.

If John Sharkey was wanted, he could almost always be found in the library. A "well

He lived off campus for two years, but we saved him from the wiles of Worcester, and 
by Junior year his easy disposition and warm smile had won him many new friends. 
He was an avid fan of the New Yorker, and his descriptions of its horror cartoons will 
be remembered by many. But most of all we'll remember John for his generosity, his 
humor, and his true sincerity . . . even if he did come from Detroit.

over the Red Sox, so he attributed it to luck. Despite his zeal for the books, Charlie 
was never too busy to engage in a friendly game of Bridge, and spent quite a bit of his 
time at calculating to upset the bidder. Charlie's only trouble at Holy Cross was 
sleep; he couldn't seem to get enough of it. His prime ambition is to do the New York

Bob arrived at Holy Cross a serious young man, grave of mien and taciturn of nature. 
However, when his classmates penetrated beneath this serious exterior they discovered 
a richness of character and warmth of personality that marked a real person. Bob 
capably filled the role of Waiter Captain for two years, and it is doubtful if the dining 
hall will ever function properly after his departure. In his free time Robert enjoyed a 
fast game of Whist or preferably a nap. Bob's career at H.C. was a fine example of firm- 
ness of purpose and the heights to which one may rise if only the spirit is willing.

But beneath this air of nonchalance, Tom's industry and intelligence put his name on

Navy also intends to cash in on his talents, as Tom receives his commission along with

Tom made a mark at Holy Cross for others to achieve in years to come.

A booming voice mingled with running water — Gerry, the greatest living authority 
on the frog and the rabbit was taking another of his famous midnight showers. They 
left him clean, but the rest of us sleepless. "The Voice" seemed to be in touch with 
everything; no matter what you needed, from a Philosophy paper to a dance ticket, 
Gerry was the man to see. To him nothing was impossible; he could always "help out 
a friend." Student, gentleman, and a friend; these words seem meaningless now in the 
day of super-adjectives, yet they are the three words which most clearly described the 
"lad from Jersey," Gerry Sheehan.

Jack, or the boy with the vocabulary, as he was sometimes called by his roommates, 
was known for his gaily swinging gait and erect stature. Many a gabfest was brightened 
with his sage and witty cracks, and his confusing tactics in switching from one side 
of the argument to the other exasperated opponents. A common subject of speculation 
was whether he wore that green jacket to bed. Another of the unsung heroes of the 
T'hawk circulation staff, he spent many Friday afternoons in the cellars of Fenwick 
preparing the paper for mailing. Ever faithful to his native Weymouth, Jack was one 
of the few Cross men to resist the charms of Worcester.

A keen interest in many varied fields marked the college career of this New Jersey 
product. Bill belonged in the category of Cross men who gave as they received, greatly 
benefiting others as well as themselves. This trait he coupled with abundant energy 
and a pleasing personality. One of the courageous minority of chronic early risers, 
he made up for this defect with a regular mid-afternoon siesta. Equally at ease in the 
classroom, on the athletic field, behind a desk in the Tomahawk office, or balancing 
a tray in Kimball Hall, Bill showed that stability of character and self-possession so 
highly prized and vitally necessary in everyday life.

Strike up the band! And when you do, there will be Tommy — eyes glued on "Doc" — 
pride gleaming in his smile. Tom's main theme at the Cross has been a "bigger and 
better Band," and each year has seen this theme more fully developed. A fondness for 
Father Mears' Arts course occasioned many pleasant visits to the Art Museums. "Little 
Shields" wore the Navy Blue and thoroughly enjoyed his cruise on Pakachoag, taking 
special pleasure in the Monday Drills. A hard worker, whether on the Kimball Clean- 
up Crew or out recruiting for The Band, his loyalty to Holy Cross rates Tommy a sin- 
cere "Well Done."

"Silver hath a sweet sound" Romeo and Juliet (IV, 5). "Sterling" with the vibrant

of art and music — in brief, a man of taste. On the reverse side were boxing and wrestling, 
the Y.M.C. A., brawling in the room with Chet and Frostie, the midnight bull sessions,

Early in his freshman year, John joined the "Amateur Radio Society" and since that 
time the names of Radio and Singleton have been synonymous here on the Hill. Him- 
self a "Ham," he did much for the advancement of WCHC. Switching from the mega- 
cycle to the foul circle was no trick for "Longjohn," and the same wrist action that 
spun the dials of WCHC, swished enough two-pointers to put him up with the league's 
high scorers. Never one to neglect duty, Jack was a consistent good student. Truly a 
man among men, he was never too engrossed with his own busy schedule to take a 
sincere interest in the doings of his many friends. Neither the dim light of Alumni 
physics labs nor the clamor of WCHC's static could dull the wit and spirit of this 
lanky Irish lad.

Willimansett, Massachusetts 

Al like his namesake, was a "happy warrior." Throughout a four year campaign on 
the books, this "warrior" never lost his sense of humor. In the darkest hours before 
dawn of a test day, the light in Smitty's room burned no brighter than the optimistic 
determination in his heart. Saturday nights, Joe donned his "step-out duds" and pre- 
pared to swoop down on the quiet town of Worcester. A multiplicity of nicknames 
resulted in much confusion, and on occasion, no little embarrassment. His hidden 
fetish, aeronautics, he knew from helicopters to guided missiles. Though his hobby 
may have been up in the air, Joe was a man with his feet on the ground.

This ex-Marine was probably the only Crusader ever to be readily admitted into the 
Sacrosanct South Worcester Social and Civic Improvement Association, Incorporated. 
Jack had a real talent for meeting people. Never one to overtax the service of the Cross' 
culinary department, Jack invariably found himself in the "caf" at eight-thirty A.M., 
coffee in one hand and a philosophy book in the other. The printed page engraved 
itself on his mind, and he interpreted it with Solomon-like wisdom. Consequently, he, 
unlike most others, made the coveted Dean's list repeatedly. The issue of battle was 
never in doubt — Jack would bear the sheepskin trophy from the field.

Clinton has contributed many notable personalities to Mount St. James, and the class 
of '52 was no exception. Wally's warming smile and generous heartiness broke through 
the thickest shell of shyness and melted the coolest reserve. Daily trips in the black 
Plymouth never left him too tired to enliven our gatherings. Never a day passed during 
which Walt's sparkling comments and erudite advice did not dispel some dark clouds 
for a despondent classmate. His unselfishness, rare in this age, made myriad friends for 
him, and an enviable reputation as a "right guy."

George's booming laugh will certainly echo around Mt. St. James for years to come. 
His generous proportions were not the only reason for his being known as a "Big 
Man on Campus." An excellent sense of humor, coupled with an intense interest in all 
activities, resulted in his being known and liked by all. When he elected to move off 
campus midway through his junior year, the place was not the same. Big George's 
interests ran from "high-brow" literature to jazz, with a special place reserved for the 
Boston Red Sox. Holy Cross will miss the big red head.

The "flea" was so named by his cronies, not for the inadequacy of his feats, but for 
the slight build, which, of course, was hardly his own fault. If you watched Joe cavort 
up and down the hockey rink, body-checking with reckless abandon, or putting his 
back into a lengthy drive down the fairway, you would appreciate his ability to hold 
his own. He evidenced the same desire for success at the books or in the caf with the 
boys. Judging the "flea" by the ruler of accomplishment is the only fair test and, as 
far as that is concerned, he measured up.

John can best be described as an animated alarm clock. Every morning at 6:45 he'd be 
bothering his roommates with oral orgies on the disciplinary consequences of missing 
Mass. He had one bewildering quality — his innate ability of finding space for his map 
collection. His wall was papered with all kinds, most of which are needed to establish 
the existence of his hometown. John's extra-curricular activities centered about music. 
The strains of a semi-classic or the melodious blending of the clarinet in the phil- 
harmonic orchestra transported him to the realm between heaven and earth. We will 
all miss the tall, preacher-resembling man from Ohio.

"Bill's" intellectual ambitions were supported by the physical energies he exploited 
to maintain himself in college. He was an enthusiastic supporter and follower of all 
social functions, but never to the detriment of his scholastic standards. Bill was seldom 
outspoken, but when occasion demanded, his tongue delivered authoritative expres- 
sions of well-informed ideas. A spectator rather than a participant when it came to 
sports, Bill expended as much energy at football games as the players. Dances after 
games, in fact, dances any time, were Bill's idea of living, but the social whirl never 
so completely engulfed him that he slipped from his scholastic perch.

"Tony" — "Starz" — "Hank" — and some called him by other names — but he still re- 
turned a big grin and friendly greeting to everyone. A helping hand when most needed 
and ready assistance to stranded mathematicians were his specialties. This blond giant 
from Gardner worked his way into a defensive spot in the Crusader line and really 
stayed there. Often an afternoon in the "Dust Bowl" atop the hill was followed by 
long sessions with the books until midnight. As dependable as they come, "Tony" 
proved himself a scholar, an athlete, and a gentleman.

"Bob" was one of many Scrantonians whom we were privileged to have as classmates. 
An ardent Thespian, Bob was well known for his appearances in dramatic presenta- 
tions. Acting was not his only field of interest, however; he achieved no little acclaim 
with the students for his caricatures of campus personalities. A voluminous reader, he 
could be found in his cubicle feverishly devouring a Steinbeck novel, and his definition 
of Sociology was classic: "a painful elaboration of the obvious." His scintillating 
conversation was always welcome with the boys in the "caf." An individual to the 
end, Bob looked forward to an active career in the Navy.

"Stew" was one of the few veterans of our class. While serving as a Navy "medic" 
he was appointed a regular in the NROTC. Somewhere his attitude toward Navy life 
changed and he became one of the four "Leathernecks" of our class. Due to a liking 
for small groups, he was a member of the select circle of "left-footers." The subject of 
MacArthur was always sufficient reason for a heated debate. Bob was a History major 
and he sparked many a "bull session" with his knowledge of dates. For "Stew" and 
the Red Sox, there's always a next year.

from the Windy City. But if this were true, then the other half of each day must have 
been quite full for him. For Sull managed to win his varsity letters in track and foot- 
ball when he wasn't earning the grades that put him on the Dean's List. "J.J." will 
become a "J.G." for a few years, but though his body may be at sea, his heart will 
remain in the Midwest.

for grasping the subject matter, he became a rarity among the physics majors bv attain- 
ing Dean's List in Junior Year. His fabulous trip to the West Coast with Pete and Ed 
was the highlight of many a tale. Upon the foundation laid in the labs of Alumni, 
"Sull" hopes to enlarge on his physics by post-grad engineering. The physics, the

Phil can list many achievements here at the Cross — his diligent work on the Tomahawk, 
his laundry service, and his expeditions into the New Hampshire wilds, but he gained 
greatest renown for his famous parties. After every Boston game, Sully would open 
wide the doors of his home, and songs and laughter would echo till the wee hours of 
the morning. He had the envious reputation of getting through the pre-med course 
with less study than his colleagues, an accomplishment which left him many precious 
hours in the beloved bunk. An even disposition, a pleasant smile and a deceptive 
shyness complete our picture of Phil Sullivan, the Chestnut Hiller.

A ready wit, plus a willingness to use it, have made Dan a pleasant man to talk to and

an athlete, and a scholar, as his varsity track competition and Dean's List marks have

"Dick," a mixture of inquisitiveness and natural ability, blended with a fine sense of

player and chosen on Collier's Ail-American freshman team of 1948, he was forced to 
leave the gridiron due to an injury. His dauntless spirit and glibness of tongue was 
carried forth into the class room as well as the lengthy "bull sessions." The East 
could never hold this towering plainsman's shoes until New Hampshire caught his 
roving eye. His use of opportunities, genial manner, booming voice, and collegiate 
appearance cannot be soon forgotten.

Though difficult really to know, the satisfaction in understanding "Joe" was ample 
compensation. When engaged in a discussion with him, few could withstand the on- 
slaught of his sharply logical mind and myriad facts gleaned from classics in all fields. 
Though tending slightly toward the radical, rarely did he make a statement which 
could not be supported upon an analysis of his position. Tall, and with a certain gaiety 
in his mammoth stride, he bore a serious note which he could never completely suc- 
ceed in hiding. His frank manner tempered with a deep sincerity brought him a respect 
enjoyed by few.

Bob's sincere intentions and good will were immediately evident early in his freshman 
year. His generous nature earned him many friends at the Cross. Buddies looking for 
a car to borrow, help with a math problem, or only a cigarette, were sure to come to 
Bob. An ability strangely akin to mental telepathy when playing bridge made him a 
"finesse" expert par excellence. Exams didn't faze Bob in the least; on the contrary, 
he'd marshall his reserve mental faculties and proceed with colors flying. With this 
attitude in the chemical profession, he can't miss.

From the shadows of Ebbets Field in the heart of Brooklyn, Jim brought to the Cross

found a pleasant geniality masked beneath his deceiving reticence. This sound-sleeping 
New Yorker was never at his best till after a morning visit to the Caf, and a quick 
review of the Dodgers' latest achievements. Recognized as the foremost campus 
authority on current motion pictures, Jim found ample time for studies, sports, and his 
beloved Times crossword puzzles. His quick wit and his tales about life in Brooklyn 
will always be remembered.

"great guy," probably expresses what we think of Jim more eloquently than a page 
of adjectives. It didn't take us long to recognize his outstanding qualities, and we 
elected him Class President for our freshman and sophomore years. A strong supporter 
of the Red Sox, week-ends at home and everything Holy Cross, Jim was best known 
for his sincerity, pleasant disposition and willingness to help anyone. His friendliness, 
shown towards the little guy as well as the "big wheel," will bring a warm glow to 
our hearts years after this is written.

Possessing the unique heritage of being the twenty-sixth member of his family to enter 
Holy Cross in no way kept Jack from being as green as any other freshman. By mid- 
autumn the green became purple, and his friendly "hiyuh" was universally known, 
his violin and singing talents led him to the Music Clubs. Here was conceived the 
Treanor-Donahue combination that endured four years of Proms, double-dates, blue 
Mondays, and final examinations. His literary accomplishments acquired international 
prominence with an essay on Irish History residing in Ireland's National Archives. 
The generosity of his friendliness will be well remembered by all of 1952's graduates.

Versatility, loyalty, and scholarship were characteristic of this Jeffersonian. "Bern"

Down through the years, Holy Cross has received its share of outstanding athletes, 
but none has carried the Crusader shield more honorably than Johnny Turco. No one 
will ever forget the seventeen touchdowns he scored in his Junior year or his inspired 
four touchdown performance against Boston College which earned for him the coveted 
O'Melia Trophy, yet, surprisingly, his first love was baseball. Friendly, sincere and 
unassuming, he never allowed the glare of flashbulbs or the plaudits of sportswriters 
efface his genuine modesty. In John Turco was embodied that rare combination of

"Repetition is the soul of my wit, "was the favorite expression of this master of humor. 
With a constant knack of transferring his ideal philosophy of enjoyment to his friends, 
Dick became the life-giver at any party. With his Krupan ability on the drums, and 
his flair for originating rare expressions, Dick supplied the downbeat to the Holy 
Cross Music Clubs, both during and after performances. A tour of Europe in the sum- 
mer of his sophomore year with the Crusader Combo enhanced his fluency in language, 
enlarged his viewpoint — but deflated his bank account. Dick appreciated other things 
besides music — dry humor, excellent cuisine, the relaxation of a day's fishing.

When we first descended upon the Hill, many homesick freshmen were comforted by 
the strains of the "Hawaiian War Chant" floating down from the towers of Fenwick. 
The source of the "music" was to prove himself a jocular, well-spirited companion. 
While he had his serious moments at college, very few of us ever witnessed them, and 
Karl was an avidly sought-after member for all social and extra-curricular activities, 
especially for a violent game of three-man football. Karl's light-hearted, level-headed 
character well equipped him for life, but his ace in the hole for coping with tense 
situations was an hilarious imitation of Rose Murphy.

Like Siamese twins, Dick and his smile were inseparable companions over four arduous 
years. Devoted to his chemistry courses somewhat more than the average student, 
Dick delighted in brewing weird, odoriferous, colorful, and at times explosive con- 
coctions. So much time did he spend thusly, that it was rumored that he had secreted 
in the coal bin at home enough apparatus to shame a Du Pont laboratory. Despite 
neighbor's testimony of mysterious smoke and smells emanating from the Volungis 
basement window, Dick swore that at home he rested. Combining business with busi- 
ness, he worked and studied in the Library. Weather permitting, it was tennis; other- 
wise basketball was Dick's relaxation.

Handsome in deed as well as in person was Dick, with a modesty that discounted 
both. This cheerful day-hop, history major, and ex-Navy man, possessed a native 
kindness that expressed itself in a constant desire to be of service. Practically always 
on the Dean's List, he was ever ready to help another pass a test. While studious, he 
could find time to discuss sports, TV, or music, as well as social activity. Markedly 
punctual, sincere, and reliable, his sterling qualities made life worth while for himself 
and his fellow Crusaders.

Ralph was a blend of outstanding characteristics. Mix in equal parts a great enthusiasm 
in all that he did, with a persistence to see its completion, and you have but a general 
outline of Ralph. Add to this a quick and intelligent wit, a never-fading smile and a 
friendly word for everyone. Throw in a great interest in sports and an ardent support 
for the home town, and you have a still clearer sketch or Ralph. He not only lent a 
helping hand to all, but also carried more than his share of the burden of responsi- 
bilities. Such is the picture of a man, who in his own way, truly won friends and 
influenced people.

Milton 86, Massachusetts 

This amiable gent from Milton crowded a lifetime's activity into four eventful years 
at Holy Cross. A consistent Dean's lister, Jim often proved himself a willing aid to his 
fellow education majors. Indeed, he had trouble only in trying to equate the advantages 
of on-campus-off-campus living. But in true Wallace style, Jim decided on the latter, 
possibly influenced by his lovely wife Nell, whom he married after sophomore year. 
Blessed by the addition of Li'l John to the Wallace clan, Jim set his sights on a career 
in teaching. Having proven himself as a scholar, husband, and father, Jim is a natural 
to succeed as a teacher.

Clune is an extraordinarily creditable mid-western ambassador to New England and 
to Holy Cross. This Michigan representative has demonstrated, during his four years 
at school, an inexhaustive spirit for all things Holy Cross. Clune's energetic participa- 
tion in every phase of college life made him a well-known figure on campus, with both 
the faculty, and the student body. His ambitious pursuits and ability to gain a foot- 
hold, benefited the many organizations with which he was connected. Whether pre- 
senting an idea, a theory, or a plan of action, he could easily persuade a listener with 
his characteristic ease and suavity of expression.

In the wee hours of each morning, when the watchman was the only one astir, Jim 
hopped out of bed and proceeded on his rounds. To the uninitiated he was the corridor 
alarm clock, averting many a week-end restriction with his "time to get up," and its 
accompanying gentle poke. An avid reader, he perused many a volume, ranging from 
detective stories to the classics, in assembly-line fashion. In addition to accrediting 
himself well in his pre-med course, Jim was an integral part of the Kimball division of 
the "Knights of the clean-up." When "Walshy" headed for home-sweet Waterbury, 
the Cross sent forth one of her most loyal disciples.

Happy-go-lucky Bill came to us from the same asphalt pastures as his beloved Fordham 
Rams and New York Giants. Though seldom in the limelight, his enthusiasm was the 
keynote of every undertaking, as was well attested by his scholastic achievement. His 
aggressive spirit in intramural athletics proved him to be a real "big little man" 
whether on Freshman field or up in the gym. His bugle tooting for the Navy kept that 
outfit in step during those long Monday afternoon drill periods. Bill can always look 
back upon his years on the Hill as time well spent.

A man's real life is that accorded him in the thoughts of other men. Truly "Buck" 
had this real life in the richest sense. His gifts, a knack of bringing laughter into a 
sombre room, or calling a happy wisdom into a seemingly futile situation, he exploited 
to lighten our darker hours. Fall and Winter, he cavorted on intramural gridiron and 
basketball courts respectively, but in the Spring this young man's fancy lightly turned 
to baseball, and no one (possibly excepting Casey Stengel) knew more about his 
beloved Yankees. A faithful server of the 6:30 "Dawn Patrol" he started every day off 
on the right foot, and never fell out of step.

A brief, but pointed invitation from the President of the United States interrupted 
"Ben's" barely-initiated pursuit of learning. Two years later Ben returned to the Hill 
of Happy Springs to take up the chase again. After four years over philosophical hill 
and educational dale, Ben cornered the elusive quarry and extracted from him one 
prized sheepskin. Along the way, he displayed spirit, enthusiasm, and adroitness at 
organization as captain of his corridor teams. From a wealth of experience, he imparted 
to less mature classmates much timely advice. He constantly reminded us that nothing 
was as bad as it seemed, and his laughter, bubbling from an optimistic spirit, brought 
welcome relief.

This second generation pre-med from Andover has left an incalculable mark on his 
classmates. Unforgettable was his eruptive laugh at a story or joke well told. His 
proficiency in crowded discussions was paralleled only by his open hospitality and good 
will to one and all. His activities ranged from the confines of the small gym, where he 
spent many an afternoon with the physical culturists, to the wilds of the Pakachoag 
golf course, where he specialized in birdies. Accomplishing what many wished to do, 
he successfully combined a diligence and proficiency in his science courses with a well 
rounded extra-curricular calendar, where his refreshing satire and humor made him 
a welcome member.

"Mr. Music," "Smiles," "Mr. Worcester," Joe deserved all these titles. One of the 
greatest entertainers in Holy Cross history, he thrilled thousands every concert season 
with his skillful xylophone artistry. Joe's outstanding personality won him countless 
friends on The Hill, and he could always be counted on when an activity needed a 
worker. His popularity and leadership ability were displayed when he was elected 
President of the Worcester Club. The ruddy-looking, good-natured Worcesterite proved 
that the gap between boarders and dayhops was but a figment of the imagination. His 
personal sentiment that "we're all in the same college" did much to unifv the class of

To maintain an outstanding scholastic rating while participating in many extracurricu- 
lar activities is a remarkable accomplishment. Myles earned it by hard work, and wore 
this distinction with a casual air of informality. With his amiable sense of humor and 
knack of proving his point, he held his campus audiences equally well with a personal 
slant on the passing world scene, or with the recounting of a trip to Durgin-Park's. 
Myles' enthusiasm for all things Holy Cross extended from the morning "caf club" 
meeting, to the chapel, where Mass and the Rosary were the opening and closing 
pages of his every day on Mount Saint James.

From his very first freshman days in the towers of O'Kane, Bob was a man who had 
his eye on the future. Through four years of A.B. trials he kept it there, making re- 
laxation a part of his magic formula. Weekday mornings after philosophy he presided 
over the "Coffee Club" of Craemer, Bates, and company. After a night in the library, 
Bob was ever ready to match wits with all comers in the wizardry of cribbage. A pre- 
cise mind, poised personality, and ability to handle a man-sized job, have made it a 
pleasure and a privilege to have Bob as a friend.

A sweeping gesture, a brilliant phrase— they introduced Bob the orator; but there was 
so much more that introduced Bob the man. There was the heart whose generosity 
knew no bounds, the soul so peaceful in broad contrast to the fiery eloquence of his 
tongue, the competitive spirit which sought its outlet in the gym, in the classroom or 
upon the rostrum. Whatever "Whetz" did, he did completely. His decisions were 
unshakable. When he studied, he was a veritable ball of fire; when he decided on a good 
time, the fire became an inferno. The drive, the wit, the talent that blazed among us, 
will never grow cold.

The campus was his stage and the classroom his triumph. His fiery personality was felt 
by all who were privileged to enjoy his jovial manner and sharp humor. "The Whit's" 
quick wit silenced any number of bull sessions, many of which were initiated by his 
repertoire of humorous sidelights. Dave was very well read on all subjects, and through 
his fine reasoning, proved himself to be a keen thinker. Law is Dave's chosen field in 
life and if he makes the same success as a lawyer, as he did a student on the hill, he 
can't help but be a standout.

On arrival at the Cross, John found himself tagged with the nick-name "Doc" which 
was to cling for four years. An avid football fan, this off-campus scholar became one 
of Mrs. F.'s adopted sons. Those fabulous jaunts to the "easy-dollar" places with 
Muldoon were socially profitable but financially disastrous. Perhaps John's most un- 
forgetable trait was the deep groan with which he responded to roll call in class after 
class. A charter member of the select circle which inhabited the caf, he could even 
draw a smile from a philosophy professor with his droll remarks. A pleasure to 
know, and a fellow to be remembered, Doc leaves a host of friends behind him.

After attending a few plebeian schools around Boston, Dave sagaciously transferred to 
H.C. at the beginning of his Junior Year. His right to popularity was soon obvious, 
and it was enhanced by his keen sense of competition and interest in chess, golf, and 
bridge. An avid photographer, this citizen of the South Shore has demonstrated his 
artistry with unusual portraits and landscapes. His second love was sleep, but only 
when his repose did not disrupt his study schedule. After observing Dave's scholastic 
abilities, it can easily be predicted that he will have something more luxurious than a 
Ford on which he can proudly display his M.D. plate.

George, with his storm coat, pipe, and horn rims, was Holy Cross' own Mr. Wall 
Street. In fact his knowledge of gilt-edged securities kept him in continual demand in 
Washington. Always one to shun Blackstone trout, he thrived on grilled cheese hors- 
d'oeuvres, which were this gourmet's particular delight. Conservatism in appearance, 
mien, and expression depict "Wilkie." Coupled with his recitation of bearded jokes, 
was his appreciation of a corny pun, which was directly proportional to the pained 
expression with which he received it. Concert music, masterfully rendered was George's 
concept of "bonum verum." George's idiosyncrasies were few, his legible letters 
fewer, and his enemies non-existent.

Frank started his four years of looking into an empty P. O. Box No. 845 at the Campion 
Country Club. At this time, he was manager of the freshman baseball team. Over on 
first Wheeler, where snow and water barrages were frequent, he was taken seriously 
with "bridgeitis." During his junior year he held the eminent position of being the 
highest classman on his corridor. It was then, as a cheerleader, that he started to lose 
his voice every Saturday afternoon in the fall. In Alumni, where electron chases elec- 
tron, and Zeeman and Doppler have their effects, Frank electrified circuits and measured 
the mass of the nucleus.

This khaki-clad "Dynamic Dctroiter" was a sort of Louis one-two punch in slow 
motion — driving energy on a leash. A quiet, methodical person, his half-hidden wit 
was as keen as a freshly-honed Gillette. That drive which always saw him giving that 
little extra something characterized his every action — the last second effort at ball- 
hawking on Father Hart's intramural courts; the extra hour in the chem lab; the added 
care on the drill field. In patience, Frank rivalled the Sphinx; in ballroom dancing, he 
out adagioed Cinderella with his own inimitable walk; in number of friends, he 
outdid himself.

More widely traveled than Harry of the White House is our Jim of Holy Cross. Wils 
has visited as many places, and has as many friends, as the Wilsmobile has miles and 
flats. From the sands of Daytona Beach and the Jersey Shore, to the many corridors of 
the Mt. St. James' dorms, his shower room voice is as well known as his faded Flying 
Tigers' jacket. In athletics, Jim was one of the best. Before he concentrated his talent 
on book-bombing, he sported the purple colors on the court and the diamond. Most 
surely this clean-cut comedian has found Holv Cross just the beginning of his travels 
and his success.

A belief that study and recreation should be properly balanced was one of Joe's main 
tenets. When it came to music, be it classical or popular, this Long Islander was never 
at a loss for the title of a score. This was his forte and main source of relaxation. An 
avid basketball fan, Joe kept a score book that was the envy of fellow hoop enthusiasts. 
Never one to refuse a friend, Joe often spent hours solving the scholastic difficulties of 
others. The business world will be able to use his chief attribute — the apt utilization 
of time.

thing but quiet. Some may remember Pete for his steady work on the books, others 
will remember him for his correspondence with the Boy Scouts, but no one will be 
able to forget his jokes. Pete's many activities kept him busy, but he always had time

Although "Jim" was not quite from a Mayflower or Plymouth Rock family, he loved 
everything about Boston, except its baseball teams. In that one respect, his heart re-

Ensigns trooped into his room at all hours to find their ships. Nimrod "Witt" spent 
many hours peering down the barrel of a Springfield, sharpening his deadly eye for the 
rifle team. Truly a man not to waste time, Jim took advantage of every opportunity 
that came his way and rated the traditional Navy "E" for excellence.

Bob was the epitome of the genial college student. Friendly in all his campus activities, 
he was a man notably marked by good looks and an easy manner. While his interests 
were centered around his social science course and his allied naval subjects, his off- 
hours were spent listening to semi-classical music, with an especial weakness towards 
Strauss waltzes. In athletics, Bob was outstanding as a football player [on Worcester 
sandlots and played with notable success on the freshman baseball team. Bob seriously 
considered a career in the Navy, but whatever his chosen field may be, we can expect 
none but favorable reports on this lad.

as he snared a pass from the arms of an opposing receiver or made a solid tackle. His 
basketball ability was equally good. For three successive years, Mike led his intramural 
team to the finals. As a student, he spent long hours with the books. An NROTC con-

that Purple diploma, where the Class of '52 welcomed him and his charming wife, 
Mary Anne. This spacious gentleman, with his booming laugh and ever-present cigar, 
was as welcome as a long weekend. Brooklyn's finest, Frank sparked the Met Club for 
three years, and did great work for the Knights of Columbus and starred on that unfor- 
getable 1000 pound relay team. As an athlete, he was often seen working out in his 
green Packard, as a socialite he set a breathtaking pace ably supported by Dagher and 
Kelly. As a student, his escapades became legends. But for sheer spirit and boundless 
energy, we'll never meet another like Frank.

Daniel C. Diemer 


Young manhood, strangely enough, often 
remembers death; we at Holy Cross were re- 
minded of it by the passing of Daniel C. 
Diemer and Philip T. Murphy, during our 
four years at college. Their passing sobered 
and saddened us. For them, no eulogy is 
necessary; and indeed, before us who realized 
the meaning of their deaths, none could be 
adequate. For we look beyond the transi- 
tory things of here and now for new heavens 
and a new earth, and quietly, with our sad- 
ness, we are aware that they possessed this, 
and were glad. It was not our desire nor their 
lot, "to live a little while, before we die 
forever;" Dan's and Phil's deaths spoke not 
to us of a cold oblivion, but rather of the 
promise of salvation and the life that shall 
have no end.

insistence of his confessor. His humility, 
diligently acquired, belied his capability. With 
assiduous concern for detail, Loyola organized 
and propelled his "company" 
to the limelight of Catholicism, then racked by 
the Protestant revolution. In Holy Cross life, the 
various activities are the students' mock 
drama for the creative and organizational talent to 
be employed after departure. Their diversity and individual 
accomplishment bear witness to a faithful, competent emulation of 
Loyola's noble standard.

'Introibo ad altare Dei. 

The Sodality of Our Lady aims to foster greater devotion to the Mother of God. The Resi- 
dent Students' Sodality this year made a positive link in the combination of spiritual and 
temporal activity that is so much a heritage of Holy Cross. Keynoted by innovations, co- 
operative effort, and a greater strengthening of the bond between the Resident Students' and 
the Day Students' Sodalities, all its efforts were expended toward a filial devotion of God 
through Mary. The Publicity, Rosary and Stamp Committees together with the Apostleship 
of Prayer and the Confraternity of Christian Doctrine resulted in a happy balance of prayer 
and work in the furtherance of God's kingdom on earth. 


Prefect Paul Reiss addresses a meeting. 


The Day Students' Sodality, with its new moderator, Rev. John P. Donnelly, S.J., did much 
this year to instill in its members that unity of purpose both here at Holy Cross and wherever 
her sons should go. Many activities were sponsored in conjunction with the Resident Stu- 
dents' Sodality. For the second year, the Day Students had their own radio program on 
WCHC. Guest speakers from the faculty as well as others from various parts of the country 
were invited to the meetings from time to time. The highlight of the year was a talk given 
by Bishop Wright of Worcester. Frequent Benediction and Rosary Devotions rounded out a 
solid year of Catholic Action. Much work was done; much time was spent. It was well worth 
both the time and the work: it was all for God and Mary, His Mother.

Preparing for Benediction. 

The St. John Berchmans Sanctuary Society, with 
a membership of over three hundred men, provided 
servers for Mass each morning and Benediction in 
the evening in keeping with a tradition of many 
years standing. Assisted by sixteen officers, Presi- 
dent Robert Mitchell easily found men eager to 
share the great privilege of serving the inspiring 
bloodless Sacrifice that is the Mass. Servers were 
provided for the Jesuit Community Chapel and St. 
Joseph's Memorial Chapel. Whether it was Mass at 
6:25 in the morning or Benediction at 6:30 in the 
evening, these devout men were always faithful 
and grateful for the opportunity to show their ador- 
ation to God by remaining close to His instituted 
Sacraments and thereby perpetuate the spirit so 
typical of Holy Cross.

The impetus of any organization is its nucleus of 
officers. Pictured above are the officers of Crusader 
Council No. 2706, Knights of Columbus for the 
scholastic year 1951-1952. Under the able leader- 
ship of Grand Knight Gerard T. Guerinot, the 
council enjoyed increasing progress and expansion 
throughout the year. A smoker, largest in council 
history, was held with admirable success. The 
membership drive held early in the school year 
established a precedent. First and second degrees 
were given to this class of candidates at Holy Cross. 
Their third degree was exemplified in impressive 
ceremonies held at Alhambra Council No. 88 in 
downtown Worcester. Similar ceremonies were held 
later in the year for another group of candidates. 
A dance at the fieldhouse led the year's remaining 
social functions, with the annual banquet com- 
pleting the calendar of activities for the year.

An honorary society organized for the promotion of student interest in Holy Cross, the 
Purple Key fostered devotion, loyalty and enthusiasm for Alma Mater. The freshman recep- 
tion, welcoming the visiting team, the roaring rallies, ushering both on and off Fit ton Field, 
maintenance of the student-guest section, student-faculty banquets, the annual Key dance — 
all owe their success to a conscientious, yet unassuming organization. The year 1951-52 will 
long be remembered as the most brilliant in recent Key history.

Alpha Sigma Nu is a National Honor Society with chapters in various Jesuit Colleges and 
Universities throughout the United States. The members of this organization are chosen with 
an articulate eye towards their scholarship, service and loyalty to Holy Cross by the Society 
itself with the approval of the Dean and the President of the College. They pledge themselves 
to exemplify by their lives the principles and ideals of a Jesuit education. James Thornton

Highlight of any concert, the Glee Club completely wins over premier audience in the first concert of '51-52 season. 

Over half a century of concerts by the Music Clubs of Holy Cross has warmed the hearts of 
audiences throughout New England, as far west as Cleveland, as far south as Washington, 
D. C. Such a story cannot be set down in so many words, but rather in the memories of the 
Four Thousand Men who have taken an active part in making this history. 

This year, under the outstanding leadership of Professor Frederick S. Mirliani, the band 
(an immense improvement over past years) cut a sharp picture with their new uniforms and 
tradition-setting ways, while the Glee Club of sixty-five voices performed with a bravissimo 
that surpassed all former organizations. Boasting of several superior soloists and the Paka- 
chogians, a twelve man vocal group, the clubs traveled on one of the most extensive tours 
on record.

Working in close harmony with the Alumni Placement Bureau, this organization has done 
much to aid this year's Seniors in their individual choices of fields of endeavor after gradua- 
tion. Indoctrination for would-be lawyers was afforded by a Mock Trial, the first of its kind 
at Holy Cross. Other careers were not neglected as the Sales Clinic and Advertising Clinic 
amply testified. Valuable help was given to all through part-time employment secured through 
the cooperation of many local firms. Experienced speakers gave helpful counsel to the students 
at meetings. This year saw the attainment of maturity for this group and Seniors were better 
prepared to make a choice of their life work. Much gratitude is due to Fr. Pierce, S.J. and 
Mr. Frank Gallagher for their gracious assistance, always freely given.

The Amateur Radio Society furthers interest in amateur radio on the campus by developing 
individual proficiency in the field of radio communications. With its booming 400 watt out- 
put, Holy Cross "hams" have administered public service in times of need. Under the call

Celebrating its fifth anniversary this year, the Human Relations Club has since its inception 
on the extra-curricular scene filled its members with an appreciative understanding of the 
American scene. From the sham-sophisticated modernism of New York to the nostalgic senti-

past year, a particular study was made of narcotics and gambling in their relationship to 
juvenile delinquency.

From a noisy cluttered womb of typewriters, 
manipulated by nimble fingers, typing and retyping 
the same lists; of idea men, writers and creative 
imaginations, encouraged and advised by tired, 
coffee-filled editors; of arguments and compromises; 
of Patchers sold and Patchers not sold; of ad men, 
almost lustful in their attempts to keep up with the 
astronomical cost of the book — from this embryo 
of successes and disappointments, of deadlines and 
ads, a star is born, the 1952 Purple Patcber! Whether 
it was Editor-in-Chief John McGarry giving that 
added push for the "impossible" deadline or your 
roommate trying to bang out a complimentary pro- 
file while you insisted on playing the radio, each 
and every senior has a part of this book. 

But it is here that we pay tribute to the men who

Spirited discussions on contemporary world 
problems were always a feature of the meetings of

schools and groups outside Holy Cross gave the 
members adequate opportunities to voice their 
opinions and combine them with those of others.

Dennis Lyons checks up on some information. 

An enlarged and revitalized Benedict Joseph Fenwick Debating Society saw an extremely active 
and successful forensic season during the 1951-52 academic year. The Society was placed on 
a four year footing to include a small group of selected sophomores and freshmen, insuring 
an adequate supply of speakers in future years. The program of House, Lecture, Radio and 
inter-collegiate debates was expanded to keep pace with the growth in membership. But with 
this increase in members, quality was not lessened. Under the leadership of Dennis Lyons, 
the purple orators had a successful year. Rev. David Twomey, S.J., worked hard, advising, 
judging and assisting in the research work for the National Debate Topic.

The Sophomore Oratorical Society, the only organization at Holy Cross exclusively for the 
Second Year Men, aims at the development of better speakers. Basic training in the prepara- 
tion of debate material, clear thinking and accurate polished expression is afforded. The 
director, Father Thomas Donovan, S.J., and his associates, Father Bean, S.J. and Mr. McCann 
trained the members in the intricacies of public speaking. Over one hundred fifty Sophomores 
took advantage of this excellent opportunity. 


Directed by Father Patrick J. Cummings, S.J., the Freshman Debating Society carried on its 
activities with a large number of interested, enthusiastic participants. The main objective 
of the Society was accomplished through open forums and regular team debates which en- 
hanced the forensic aplomb of the members.

Which God and Nature do with actors fill."

With the avowed purpose of acquiring practical 
experience in drama and speech for educational and 
recreational benefits, the Dramatic Society concluded 
the 1951-52 season steeped in plaudits and bravos. 

First of all, Father Frederick Gallagher, S.J. 
should take a bow for the entertaining film series 
which he himself personally chose for the enjoy- 
ment of Cross students. This "Best Film Series" 
helps supply funds for tours, such as the one in early 
October when a group of thespians traveled to 
Stamford, Conn, to portray "The Drama of the 
Mass." In January, an all male cast rendered 
Emmet Lavery's drama on the Society of Jesus, 
"The First Legion." The Purple actors again took 
to the road in March to perform a series of one-act 
plays before an appreciative group at Fort Devans. 
At the climax of the theatrical season, the faculty 
and students became first nighters in Fenwick 
Auditorium to witness an almost professional ren- 
dition of one of Oscar Wilde's best, "The Impor- 
tance of Being Ernest." An extra curtain call for

WCHC and the Class of '52 started at Holy Cross together. With the Class of '52, it matured 
from an amateurish intruder on the extra-curricular scene to a polished leader of Holy Cross 
Activity. Surpassing all past endeavors with more "live" shows than ever before, the campus 
Station featured such programs as "Quiz Time," sports broadcasts of basketball games and 
commentaries by team Captains, and several original radio dramas. The current events cov- 
erage was unusually wide for a college station with panel discussion groups, student as well 
as faculty news analyses and the New York Times nightly coverage. For the intellectuals 
there were operatic arias and classical interludes, while popular canned music displayed the 
best taste of Crusader disc jockeys. With the combination of Myles Whalen's direction as 
Station Manager and the glamour of WCHC itself, there were many students that wished they 
were a working portion and not merely a satisfied listening audience to "645 on your dial." 

The boys prep for an exciting play-by-play to be 
piped up to the Hill.

Featuring a varied program of events, the "Deutsche Verein" witnessed a rebirth of enthu- 
siasm. To promote interest in German culture, the club, guided by President Bill Dowling, 
sponsored slide lectures, movies and weekly radio programs, all conducted in German. The 
regular banquets in the city provided an opportunity for faculty moderators Fr. Fiekers, S.J., 
Mr. Noble and Mr. Boursy to mingle with the members in a convivial atmosphere. 

This year the French Club, with Dr. O'Hara as moderator, was a favorite organization of 
many students. A choral group and a radio program on WCHC were featured and a series of 
one-act plays were presented, all "enfrancais." The meetings were enlivened with slides, guest 
speakers, discussions, and singing. The staff of Le Croise was able to produce more and better 
publications with new features and articles of greater interest.

This was the sixth year of existence for the Mathematics Club. It held meetings on alternate 
Mondays to discuss topics in advanced undergraduate mathematics not ordinarily found in 
the prescribed curriculum. Lectures were delivered by faculty members as well as the students 
themselves. With President Daniel McGinn at the helm, the study of pure and applied mathe- 
matics was furthered.

Once again your Student Congress, the spring board of all college activities, has proven its 
mettle in both representative and service capacities. 

Any problem presented by the student body, whether public or private, large or small, was 
given due consideration, and if warranted, was sent through the faculty channels for final 
approval. From corridor phone standbys to stubborn water fountains your Congress was there. 

As far as student services were concerned, your congress was all by itself. Father Keller's 
renowned Christopher Movement was sponsored here by the Congress. Student Employment 
(in conjunction with the CRA) finally came into its own as evidenced by our many Crusader 
taxpayers. Club Liaison united the myriad of organizations on the Hill while Faculty Rela- 
tions dickered with the powers-that-be. Any student can testify to the efficacy of the Student 
Activities Committee with its many dances and ever popular, ever informative Social Calendar.

Spurred on by a reputation as one of the most 
outstanding clubs on the Hill, HOC continued to 
offer its many members recreational and social 
activities. With the ski team coming into its own 
in the New England Intercollegiate Ski Confer- 
ence, the tempo of outdoor fun increased, climax- 
ing with the Winter Festival at the Hillcrest Coun- 
try Club. Once again the Outing Club became the 
nexus of social life at the Cross with "stag" 
dances and the second annual picnic after the Junior 
Prom in May. Adding to its wide and varied ac- 
tivities, it concluded the '51-'52 year as co-sponsors 
of Holy Cross Day. 

Competing with neighboring New England Col- 
leges and Universities for the first time since its 
reorganization in 1950, the Holy Cross Chess Club 
proved its place as one of the most outstanding 
minor activities on the Hill. Such general interest 
was displayed throughout the year that meetings 
were held weekly to discuss the intricate problems 
of the game. In addition to intercollegiate Chess 
meets, members engaged in a mind-twisting round 
robin tourney which consistently attracted kibitz- 
ers in the small caf. 

It is difficult to believe that the Interracial Jus- 
tice Club is still in the embryonic stage. What with 
prominent speakers addressing its members at fre- 
quent intervals on political, social and economic 
problems, it has become an outstanding educa- 
tional force on campus. Its members place the 
many problems of minority groups under the micro- 
scope of Catholic Social Principles, examining, 
dissecting, analyzing until they have drawn conclu- 
sions satisfactory to all.

Providing the one necessary touch with home, the various 
Regional Clubs did much throughout the year with the welfare 

of their members in mind. Activities here at Holy Cross helped 
a lot, but it was those affairs held in the home territory that 

kept Holy Cross men together over the vacation periods.

Oh! That Harvard game dance! 

Two members arrange dates for a Boston Club dance. 

Boston Club 

Charged with the energy of three-hundred spirited members, the Boston Undergraduate Club 
rendered an account of itself far superior to the past. Beantown Hotels (Statler, Puritan and 
Somerset) added the Harvard victory dance and the B.C. dance to their many claims to fame. 
These social affairs were topped only by the Christmas Ball and the Dinner-Dance during 
Easter vacation. Trophies were donated to the Class of '52 and were awarded to the Senior 
football players. Charities also heard the voice of this spirited group when they gave one- 
hundred dollars to the St. Vincent de Paul Society. The '51-'52 year was ended with a picnic 
and outing for the seniors from the Hub City.

on the Astor Roof. 

Consider the unique social zenith that is New 
York with its Waldorf Astoria and Stork Club and 
it is no wonder that the Metropolitan Club is the out- 
standing regional group on (and off) the Hill. From 
Brooklyn's Bay Ridge, to lower Connecticut's 
Greenwich, hundreds of New Yorkers and their 
friends flocked to the Martinique in September to 
welcome the frosh, to the Glen Island at Thanks- 
giving, the Astor Roof at Christmas and the Bilt- 
more at Easter for their vacation dances. Add to 
these affairs, the introduction of the "Crusader- 
Ram" trophy and the reception after the Fordham 
game and you have the most active year in Met 
Club history.

saders at the Brown Victory Dance, then continued 
along the road to social success with Christmas and 
Easter affairs and a Glee Club Concert and Dance, 
which proved to be the highlight of the year.

Hartford Club 

Sparked by six functions, the Hartford Club social 
season started early in the summer, climaxed with 
the Christmas formal and concluded with a Senior 
Outing in June. An excellent example of what a 
small but determined group can accomplish, they 
not only increased the spirit of their members, but 
also strengthened the bond with the Alumni in the 
Greater Hartford Area.

Since its rebirth in 1947, the Springfield Club has 
been gaining steadily in social and financial pres-

spread of good will in Western Massachusetts for 
Holy Cross, nevertheless its members found time 
to enjoy themselves at the annual Thanksgiving 
Dance, Christmas Ball and Easter Party.

With the inauguration of an Alumni-Undergrad-

important minor regional group at Holy Cross. 
This unprecedented move headlined a year of ac- 
tivity which included the usual Thanksgiving, 
Christmas and Easter dances as well as an informal 
affair for the incoming freshmen and a reception 
after the Colgate victory.

Enjoying the largest membership of any regional 
club at Holy Cross, the Worcester Club sponsored 
seven major activities this year. The Music Clubs 
were presented at their annual concert and dance 
at the Municipal Auditorium, and the proceeds 
donated to their Orphan's Scholarship Fund. Holi- 
day dances and Parents' Night rounded out the 
year's program of activities.

New York Southern Tier Club which was auspi-

and a Communion Breakfast. The students from 
the area around Binghamton also sponsored holi- 
day parties and gatherings, thereby laying a worthy 
foundation on which the members to come can 

The Michigan Club 

Now completing its fifth year at Holy Cross, the 
Michigan Club boasted a membership of almost 
thirty men. At the beginning of the year, they wel- 
comed the Freshmen and continued to provide en-

losing allegiance to their true love, the members 
attended the football game between the University 
of Detroit and Boston College.

Ne w York Club 

Although not the largest regional club at Holy 
Cross, its members always had an enjoyable time 
at the several social functions held by the Western 
New York Club. A highly successful party took 
the place of an organized Christmas dance. The 
most decisive factor in all the club's activities was 
the cooperative spirit of all. 


Berkshire Club 

Popular opinion notwithstanding, Massachu- 
setts does not terminate at Worcester as the Cru- 
saders from the Berkshire Hills will vehemently 
testify. Hospitality was the by-word in this or- 
ganization which inaugurated a get-acquainted 
outing for the Freshmen last year as an annual 
addition to the club's activities. Berkshire grad- 
uates this year are John Reddington and Joseph

the principal vacations of the school year. These 
were marked by large turnouts and good times.

Ne w York Club 

With a Formal Ball at Christmastime and an in- 
formal party during the Easter vacation, the Eastern 
New York Club served its purpose well. In the '51-'52 
season, it was the avowed aim of the Club to 
organize at least socially the Alumni as well as the 
undergraduates of Holy Cross from Albany and the 
surrounding areas. Although a small group, both 
their attempts during the school year were highly

Dancing and partying at the Brook-Lea Country 
Club became the highlight of the Christmas vaca-

rather than have a party at Easter holiday, they 
decided upon another ball, which attracted not 
only the Club members but many of their friends.

Water bury Club 

Vieing with its rival from the Nutmeg State, the 
Waterbury Club conducted successful affairs during 
the Christmas, Easter and summer vacations. Sev- 
eral Connecticut Crossmen and their friends donned 
their tuxes and bought bouquets for their gals, all 
of whom enjoyed themselves at the Christmas 
formal. The Easter affair, an informal reception, 
was also well received. 




Ignatius' education was not an easy one: for a man of 
thirty-three, the beginning of a strict course 
of study is not lightly to be considered. But 

the end demands the preparation and Ignatius 
realized that perfection comes slowly. The 

underclassmen at Holy Cross College are akin to 
Loyola and the four centuries 
of his students : they are men whose minds and 
wills are in the making, men who look forward 
to the perfection that will be evidenced in 
their due turn. Ignatius' education was pursued at 
his own direction: his fortunate and inspired choice has 
led to the direction of the education of others, of whom the men of Holy 
Cross make a part. 

Robert E. Cahill 


Xooking into the kaleidoscope of a college career, 
J it is difficult to determine what made the pat- 
tern of Junior year different from the pictures of 
Freshman or Sophomore year we had reluctantly or 
jubilantly left behind, or the pattern of Senior year 
we were rapidly approaching with mingled feel- 
ings of eagerness or anxiety. If we did not know 
Junior year was different, we dare not deny we felt 
its "newness" in a thousand and one ways. For the 
history of the Junior class is one that will always 
be written on hearts, and not on paper. To attempt 
to capture all the deeds and words, all the names 
and events of the year, is part of immaturity's long- 
ing. For each of us to carry away some personally 
pleasurable recollections — that is part of growing 
up. Only from the common store of memories, the 
gods allow us to relive some treasured moments. 
With joyous relish, we do so. 

We remember electing our class officers: Bob 
Cahill as President, Ed Fox, Larry Rowe, and Jim 
Hamilton as Vice-President, Secretary and Treas- 
urer, respectively. We all recall watching a dozen 
exciting football games in the cider-air of autumn, 

and experiencing the thrill of a most successful sea- 
son, with able and admirable assists from Charlie 
Maloy, Joe Gleason, Chet Millet and Owen Coo- 
gan. The heavy snows of winter dampened our 
cheering spirits not a whit. We remember seeing 
Earle Markey, Bud Kielly, and Bob Magillagan 
win us renown on the polished-board-floor. Spring 
came and a young man's fancy turned to thoughts 
of — baseball. On Fitton Field, Dick Bogdan hurled 
the fast one to Pete Naton, mystifying amateur and 
expert alike. Some played intramurals and some 
just watched. But we were all part of the camara- 
derie — part of the multicolored pattern of the 
kaleidoscope — and all part of Junior year. 

In November, we chose Mike Heffernan as Prom 
Chairman; in May, he and his hardworking Com- 
mittee, a crew of carefully-selected Crusaders, pro- 
duced a Junior Prom, which was the focal point of 
a bright and colorful social calendar. Between No- 
vember and May we busied ourselves in the multi- 
farious activities of the regional clubs, the language 
and science academies — in short, in any or all of the 
organizations that were already part of Holy Cross

CLASS OF 1953 

and which we made part of the pattern of our 
Junior year. Bob Simmons, Bob Curry, Len Quigley, 
and Joe Kerwin were filling and scanning the pages 
of the Tomahawk every week. Jim Sheehey, Bill 
Kiernan, and Pete McCord were steady contribu- 
tors to the Purple. Dick Doyle, "Dad" Kiernan, 
Art Weller and Maurice Duchaine were to be found 
at WCHC — at any hour of the day. Jim O'Malley 
and Mickey Duggan could be caught snapping pic- 
tures for the Tomahawk, Purple and Patcher any- 
where — on campus or off. Histrionic skill proved 
another forte. Ed Winters and Lou Pecek in the 
Dramatic Society, Joe Fogarty, Mike McNulty and 
"Oke" O'Connor, and a host of others in the 
B.J.F., sounded off in their respective mediums. 
"Doc" Reney and Jack O'Connell put the spurs to 
the French Club. Joe Mullen and Dick Barnes were 
among our Purple Key representatives while Jack 
O'Brien gave his all as Student Congress Secretary. 
It was all part of growing up — all part of coming 
of age — all part of the pattern. 

On the scholastic scene, we found familiar names 
on the Dean's List. In our religious duties: retreat, 

sodalities, and Sanctuary Society, the loyal sons of 
Alumni and Beaven demonstrated that first things 
could come first, last and always. The Confraternity 
of Christian Doctrine and the Christophers, under 
the adroit direction of Al Burke, with valuable 
assistance from Don Matthews, Jack Weiser and 
Mike Schiffer, recruited many men from the class of 
Fifty-three. That we were developing a sense of 
values was evident in all we attempted, and in par- 
ticular in the way we reacted to the death of a 
classmate. We had put off the things of a boy, and 
were looking for the things of a man. 

The Juniors were never without their faults and 
their foibles. But we were eager to experiment with 
this business of idea and ideal. If we fumbled, as we 
often did, we knew how and why to come back 
again. We felt the meaning of another year passing. 
And now it has passed. Perhaps the fortunes of the 
future are already reflected in the pattern of the past 
year. Closing the kaleidoscope of our college career 
for a while, we know only now that Junior year 
had found us growing up, had drawn us closer to- 
gether, and had left us nearer to Jerusalem.

Barry R. McDonough 



While quantity does not necessarily imply 
quality, the Class of '54, the largest in Holy 
Cross history excluding this year's Frosh, gave 
promise of becoming one of the outstanding edi- 
tions in the annals of the school from their success 
in every field of endeavor. In this, their second 
stanza on the Hill of Pleasant Springs, the Sophs 
cast off their juvenile freshmen mantles, rolled up 
the proverbial sleeves and set to work in earnest. 
Dwelling in Wheeler and Alumni, the spirit of '54 
fused all the members of the Class into one machine 
with ambition and drive its fuel, perfection in every 
function its goal. 

In the elections held at the end of the freshman 
year, Barry McDonough was picked as the man to 
wield the President's gavel; Fran Beauregard, his 
Vice-President; Dick Gralton to hold the money; 
and Tom Walsh the Secretary-Elect who left after 
a short tenure of office to follow a vocation in the 
Society of Jesus. This quartet functioned very effi- 
ciently throughout the year and more than demon- 
strated the trust we put in them. 

The most outstanding achievement of our class, 
as a whole, was the dance held in the field-house 
after the Marquette game, November 10th, 1951. 

It was unique in that it was the first dance ever 
sponsored exclusively by the Sophomore Class, and, 
under the able leadership of Chairman Barry Mc- 
Donough with his capable, energetic staff, it was 
a great social success, thoroughly enjoyed by the 
300 couples who attended. 

On the green of Fitton Field, the sophomore con- 
tingent of the Crusader eleven gained wide recog- 
nition and applause from the fans who watched the 
exploits of Gene Schiller, Pete Biocca, Mike Cooney 
and Jack Carroll of the offensive platoon, and Chick 
Murphy, Tony Parisi, Joe Harrington, Jim Buono- 
pane and Hank Lemire of the outstanding defend- 
ers. In all, the Class of '54 placed eighteen men on 
the varsity. 

Togo Palazzi, Ronnie Perry, Gene Schiller, Ken 
Snyder and Jack Carroll were no strangers to either 
the Worcester Auditorium or the Boston Garden as 
they saw plenty of action for Buster Sheary's Pur- 
ple quintet. The Harriers and the Track and Field 
teams were bolstered by the addition of Bob Cor- 
boy, Eddie Hand, Bruce McConnachie, Bob 
Maierra, Mike Sullivan and Pete Sanderson from 
last year's frosh stellar ranks. When the ball and 
bat took over the Fitton sportlight this spring,

CLASS OF 1954 

cavorting around the diamond could be found Paul 
Brissette, Paul McGonigle, Hugh French, Ron 
Perry and many other soph standouts. 

The Sophomore Oratorical Society, under the 
chairmanship of John Summa and ably guided by 
Fathers Donovan and Bean provided valuable ex- 
perience in the fields of public speaking debating, 
and parliamentary procedure for the second-year 
men in its regular Monday night meetings. Our 
campus publications, the Tomahawk and the Purple, 
found the '54 men ready, capable and adept at either 
putting the pen to paper or keeping the presses 

Still fledglings on the hill of Mount Saint James, 
the members of the Sophomore Class began to in- 
fuse their spirit and eagerness into the various 
organizations of the College. From the unsung band 
and cheerleader stalwarts, through the editors and 
contributors to the various Crusader publications, 
to their active participation in the many religious 
exercises . . . sodality, devotions, novenas and re- 
treats . . . the Class of '54 is a solid integral and re- 
liable body of men, indispensable to life at Holy

Ahand-shaking, though name-forgetting 
throng of confused young men, the class of 
1955, massed in the Intramural Gymnasium on 
September 20th to hear an address of welcome by the 
Very Reverend John A. O'Brien, S.J. This group 
heard itself referred to in the course of the Presi- 
dent's talk as "record-breaking." An adjective that 
other classes attain only after years of outstanding 
accomplishments, the freshman section earned by 
its mere assemblage, for its 589 members marked 
the largest single class enrollment in Holy Cross 

Having survived a series cf ponderous placement 
tests, the freshman, begging for price reductions 
from the upper class text-scalpers, began the annual 
book-hunt period. Another onslaught met and re- 
pelled was that of the cash-craving club presidents, 
newspaper hucksters and on-campus haberdashers. 

When classes got under way, the homework- 
weary fifty-fivers sought relief in sports and other 
extra-curricular activities. Foremost among those 
to uphold class honor were varsity footballers 
Gerry O'Leary, Ed Stromski, Bob Dee, and John 
Hurley. Although there was no yearling squad, 
the junior varsity claimed many freshmen as stars: 

Walt Murray, Bob Cooney, Dave Sheahan, and 
Tom Carstens. In the less organized, but often 
more bruising, intramural bracket, outstanding 
was the Campion Hall team, led by ace backfield- 
men Dick Murphy and Bob Ciccolini. 

For the first time since its inception the B.J.F. 
Debating Society admitted freshmen to the select 
round-table of the college's top rebuttal-wranglers. 
With well-chosen words and respect-commanding 
bass voices, John Baxter and Joe Lena garnered 
themselves spots on the team. For beginners and the 
less pretentious there was the Freshman Debating 
Society, which boasted foreign-policy and draft- 
law free-for-alls as the feature attractions of its 
Tuesday evening meetings. In an early election 
Joseph Reilly was named President of the club, Bob 
King Vice-President, and Frank Doyle Secretary. 
Joe Lena, Boston's current-events prodigy, was an 
essential cog in the History Society's machinery. 

The varsity basketball squad numbered Walt 
Suprunowicz and Jim Lewis among its potential 
all-star hoopsters. On the freshman five were first- 
teamers John Tosca, Milt Campbell, Bill McGrath, 
Dan Drees, and Jim Foley. Yelling and roaring on 
the sidelines were the contortionist cheerleaders, 


Honorary President 

Bob Walsh and Charlie Bozalleri. 

Representing the more cultural side of campus 
life was Dan Macken, a consistent contributor to 
the college literary magazine. Bob MacCormack 
lost no time in notching a position as radio editor 
of the Tomahaivk. Weekly cartoons, distinguished 
for their near-professional style, were the products 
of Bill Riordan's talented pen. 

Many freshmen funneled their excess steam 
through the valves of tubas, trumpets and coronets 
in the band, while others performed for the Glee 
Club and the choir. In the spotlight for his starring 
role in the Dramatic Society's presentation of The 
First Legion was Bob King. 

During the 1951-52 scholastic year many changes 
have taken place. The most chronic gripers have 
rechanneled their energies to unabashed enthusiasm 
for the Cross. High school playboys buckled down 
to the investigation of the Homeric simile and the 
exponential equation. The most cynically blase 
freshmen found themselves screaming their heads 
off as the Crusaders battled down the gridiron. In 
short, the freshman class became infused with the 
spirit which many have tried, but few have been 
able, to define — the Holy Cross spirit.

In medieval custom, the only true "sports" were those 

practised by knights and nobles at elaborate 
tournaments. For Loyola and his band their 

"sport" in our sense of the word was time 
stolen from intellectual for devout spiritual 

activity. This soul exercise was, by far, para- 
mount, yet, despite his 
asceticism, Ignatius counselled a sound mind in 
a healthy body as the epitome of education. His 
descendants, faculty and students, faithfully 
persevere in this precept. Whether on Fitton Field 
before twenty thousand or intramural field with ten 
spectators, the same hope is evident: to produce an educated man, a healthy

Head Coach Dr. Edward N. Anderson. 


^ j£ 

Plunging into a sea bright with expectation, 
Dr. Eddie Anderson did not fail the anxious 
Crusader followers. Two short years after leaving 
the Cornhuskers of Iowa, he succeeded in raising 
our football fortunes to a height not enjoyed since 
the Golden Era of the Thirties. An experienced 
squad, comprised of such veterans as Charlie Maloy, 
Jack Feltch, Mel Massucco, John Turco, Bob 
Doyle, Tom McCann and eight or ten others, joined 
forces with green but willing Frosh (allowed to 
compete in Varsity competition for the first time 
since the war) to continue on the Doctor's pre- 
scribed road to complete recovery. And complete 
was exactly what that recovery was. Psychologi- 
cally handicapped by pre-season predictions of 
greatness, Anderson soon produced a team that was 
geared in fundamentals; a precision team which 
gave testimony to the outstanding coaching ability 
of the Doctor, Charlie O'Rourke, Jim Harris and 
Elmer Madar. Captained by Massucco, the hard- 
running halfback, the team returned from the pre- 
vious year with the loss of only one regular. The 
first string backfield, directed by Maloy, the Roch- 
ester Rocket, and completed by Massucco, the 
lightning-fast Johnny Turco and pile-driving vet- 
eran fullback Bob Doyle, found before them a mus- 
cular wall, with reserves as rough and even bigger 
than the starters. It wasn't long before the Master's 
hand had proved its skill, and a high-spirited, well- 
trained squad journeyed to Cambridge to introduce 

the 1951 Crusaders to the Ivy League. 

It took the Worcester warriors just two minutes 
and forty seconds to provide the first score of the 
season and show the Johnnies what manner of men 
is raised on the Hill of Pleasant Springs. To Charlie 
Maloy went the honor of scoring the first touch- 
down of the new campaign as he sneaked into the 
Harvard end zone just eight plays after the opening 
kick-off. In the second period Capt. Mel Massucco 
ended a 55-yard march by toting a Maloy pitchout 
four yards to pay dirt. Bob Doyle, not to be out- 
done, crashed over for another score, while Tom 
McCann bulled over from the ten after taking a 
twenty-two yard pass from Maloy. Late in the 
fourth quarter, with unlisted subs manning the for- 
ward wall, Paul Gallo, galloping as of old, com- 
pleted the day's workout by dragging two Crimson 
defenders over the goal. Jack Feltch, the massive 
placekicker, converted on three of four attempts 
and as the sun set over the stadium the scoreboard 
read, Holy Cross 33, Harvard 6. 

Throughout the following week, local sports- 
writers shouted warnings to all and sundry that 
here was a great team, but New York critics 
shouted even louder that Fordham was the Eastern 
powerhouse. Atop the hill, however, there was no 
time to read newspapers. All week long the Cru- 
saders pushed each other around and on the follow- 
ing Saturday, a warm and sunny autumn day, they 
treated 23,000 screaming fans to an outstanding dis-

play of football prowess. Again it took the Purple 
but eight plays to score as a 26 yard Maloy to Turco 
pass paved the way for what proved to be a high- 
scoring afternoon. A Ram fumble set up the second 
touchdown, which was gained by Turco's eight 
yard sprint. Then came a dazzling 42-yard jaunt by 
Massucco on which a wake of stupefied Ram de- 
fenders were left sprawling on the field. After 
Maloy recovered a fumbled punt reception, Mas- 
succo again crashed into the end zone from one 
yard out. In the third period Doyle traveled 14 
yards through tackle, while Biocca contributed his 
bit with a 20-yard scamper down the sidelines. Paul 
Gallo added to the scoring with a fifteen yard slant 
through tackle and an unheralded young giant 
named Joe Dunay, who had been in the Fordham 
backfield so much during the game that he looked 
like the Ram flanker, pounced on a Roger Franz 

fumble in the end zone and ballooned the final score 
into a 54-20 rout of the previously unbeaten Rams. 
While visions of an undefeated season danced in 
our heads the team headed south for the land of 
the Bayous and its first real test. With 30,000 rebels 
melting in the 77° heat, the southerners gasped in 
amazement as we raced into a quick 12-0 lead. 
Charlie Maloy, plagued by a duodenal ulcer, and 
badly harried by a massive Green Wave line, was 
forced to keep his attack grounded, and when a 
fumbled punt was recovered three plays after the 
opening kickofF, Doyle and Massucco smashed at 
the tackle slots, with Massucco finally crashing 
over from the eight yard line. Shortly after Ed 
McCarthy pounced on another Tulane fumble and 
with Turco sweeping the ends, Massucco rapping 
the tackles, and Doyle finally twisting through the 
middle from the two, we had forged into a 12-0

lead. At this point the Green Wave rolled back, 
and, aided by a 15 yard penalty, marched 90 yards for 
a touchdown. Then came the now famous "charge 
of the fight brigade" instigated by Jim Buonapane 
and spearheaded by Dr. Anderson. After Holy Cross 
had been called for piling, Anderson stormed onto 
the field to demand an explanation, but southern 
hospitality replied with a 15 yard penalty (placing 
the ball on the one yard line) from where Tulane 
had no difficulty in scoring. The second half found 
the Crusaders physically beaten, but still fighting. 
Turco had a touchdown nullified when he was 
charged with stepping offside, and although Chick 
Murphy, Al Mclntyre and Tom McCann did smear 
Tulane's Kennedy in the end zone for a safety and 
two points, the southern heat was too much for the 
tired Purple. Tulane managed to score the winning 
touchdown in the second half, but the Crusaders,

given two glorious chances to score in the closing 
minutes of the game, were too exhausted to push 
across the tying score, and we went down to a 20-14 
defeat, our first one of the year. 

Home again on Fitton Field, the Crusaders proved 
that the defeat had been taken seriously. New York 
.University happened to be the hapless victims, and 
the Purple smothered the Violets under a 53-6 score. 
With Massucco on a linament diet and Maloy on a 
milk one, the reserves took over and Dr. Anders.on 

used as many players as there were points scored. 
Soph Gene Schiller directed the first string back- 
field and after Doyle and Turco had combined to 
roll up a 21-0 lead in thirteen minutes, the Varsity 
retired to the bench. Chick Murphy then treated 
the crowd to a 70 yard punt return for a score and 
Paul Gallo banged over for another. Then, with a 
40 point lead, Anderson took the wraps off Fresh- 
man Charlie Sowerby, who promptly showed his 
appreciation by bulldozing 81 yards on a pitchout

play for the seventh touchdown. Tony Parisi, run- 
ning from fullback, ended the scoring on a 28 yard 
pass play from Don Jolie after three other touch- 
downs had been nullified by penalties. 

Brown was the next test for our rugged Crusaders, 
but the almost physically bankrupt Bruins, after 
holding us on even terms for 25 minutes, finally 
were overwhelmed by a 41-6 score. The scoring ice 
was broken late in the second period when Paul 
Gallo, spinning through the entire Brown team, 

jitterbugged 73 yards along the sidelines for our 
first score. Johnny Turco then entered the act, fak- 
ing his way all over the field for two touchdowns. 
One of the scores came at the end of a 68 yard punt 
return, a play on which he left the Bruin defense 
sprawled all over the field. With Maloy still ailing, 
Schiller kept the attack rolling by scoring once 
himself and completing a 31 yard screen pass to 
Doyle for another six points. Biocca smashed 
through center for the other score, and Jack Feltch

kicked his fifth conversion of the day. When sta-

and had become the leading offensive team in the 

The following week a driving rain kept the Cru- 
sader attack grounded, but the return of Maloy and 
Massucco inspired the team to overpower the Red 
Raiders from Colgate by a 34-6 score. Chick 
Murphy, who specialized in spectacular punt re- 
turns, raced 55 yards into the Colgate end zone just 
four minutes after the game started. Colgate, defy- 
ing the unfavorable conditions, attempted a wide- 
open attack, but the defensive team quickly smeared 
every Red Raider thrust. This defensive squad, play- 
ing one of its finest games, also accounted for the 
second score when Joe Dunay intercepted a Colgate 
pass and lugged it 20 yards into the end zone. Then 
Massucco, who was playing for the first time since 
his shoulder separation at Tulane, reeled off a 73 
yard scoring run for one of the finest individual runs 
of a brilliant season. Aided by Joe Gleason's dev- 
astating block at midfield, Massucco scampered 
along the sidelines on one of the truly great ball- 
toting feats in Fitton Field history. A drenching 
rain hampered Holy Cross' attack in the third 
period, but the defensive team, led by Henry Le- 
mire, a Sophomore end, pushed Colgate all over the 
field. In the final quarter Lemire set up our last two 
scores, first by blocking a punt, and then by pounc- 
ing on a Red Raider fumble. Then came the loudest 

cheer of the day as Charlie Maloy returned to action 
and whipped one of his best passes into the waiting 
arms of Turco for the final score. Feltch continued 
his amazing kicking average by connecting on four 
of his five tries. 

By this time the Crusaders were strong contenders 
for an Orange Bowl invitation, but Marquette, who 
had previously thrown scares into mighty Michi- 
gan State and Wisconsin next stood before the Pur- 
ple. The Crusaders quickly proved that they were 
the nation's most prolific football offensive team 
as they unleashed a nine minute barrage in the first 
half that accounted for five touchdowns. The game 
started slowly, with Massucco being forced to punt 
from his end zone, but after Chick Murphy raced 
45 yards down the sidelines with a Marquette punt, 
Maloy stayed on the ground, with the score com- 
ing on a three yard quarterback sneak. This was 
the start. Within the next nine minutes, the offen- 
sive and defensive teams exchanged positions so 
quickly that you couldn't even tell the players with 
a scorecard. In the melee Owen Coogan blocked a 
punt, Mike Zinkiewicz intercepted a pass, Turco 
scooted the ends for two scores, Doyle smashed off 
guard for another one, and, with Feltch converting 
on three of his attempts, Maloy heaved a long bul- 
let to Turco who skipped into the end zone for the 
final score. Tom McCann, our sensational web- 
fingered wingman, had one of his best days, as he 
made five spectacular catches for a total of 94 yards,

and the powerful Hilltoppers had been levelled by 
a 39-13 score. 

The formidable Marines from Quantico were next 
on our schedule, and, boasting a team of former Ail- 
Americans and ex-professional players, caused just 
concern to Coach Anderson. Charlie Maloy, how- 
ever, soon calmed his coach's fears by unloosing a 
spectacular aerial attack which resulted in a rugged 
39-14 victory. Although a monstrous forward wall, 
led by Rice's All-American Weldon Humble man- 
handled our ground attack, Maloy found a new re- 
ceiver in the person of Soph Jack Carroll and com- 
pleted 21 of his 28 attempts. Carroll, subbing for 
the injured Tom McCann, and playing his first var- 
sity game on the offense, caught nine of Maloy's 
pitches and accounted for 78 yards. We drew first 
blood when Doyle crashed into the end zone from 
the eight while carrying a Marine on his back. Joe 
Mikutowicz then snagged one of Maloy's passes 
and streaked seven yards for a score. Two sensa- 
tional Carroll catches brought the Crusaders to the 
threshold, and Massucco twice crashed over for 
touchdowns. After the Marines had scored twice on 
long pass plays, Maloy chucked his way downfield 
and finally found Turco on the 15. The Jet zig- 
zagged through six Marine defenders for the score. 
Turco also scored our final touchdown when he 
caught a Maloy pass and faked the great Humble, 
who was tremendous as a line backer, out of posi- 
tion as he raced over for the score. The defensive 
team so neatly contained the Marine ground attack 
that they never yielded more than seven yards on a 
running play. 

Only two more to go and we were really riding 

high. Just Temple and B.C. to get by and then pre- 
haps Florida and the Orange Bowl. Sixteen senior 
veterans were anxious to look their best in their 
last fray on Fitton Field and this time the Owls of 
Temple were the victims 41-7. Chick Murphy 
started the scoring with a 70-yard punt return for 
the most sensational play of the day. Maloy and 
Massucco soon joined the chorus, with each con- 
tributing two touchdowns to the cause. Maloy's 
scores came on quarterback sneaks, while Massucco 
gained his on off-tackle slants of six and ten yards. 
Gene Schiller finished the scoring with a three yard 
plunge in the final quarter. Feltch again success- 
fully booted five of his six points-after attempts. 
Temple had been soundly beaten as the 268-19 
yards gained rushing proved, and there was only 
one hurdle left. . . . 

But we tripped! A crowd of 40,000 was literally 
stunned as B.C.'s Eagles nailed a 19-14 loss on our 
door. None of us could believe it, but it happened. 

The day started off in typical fashion with Maloy 
going over on a quarterback sneak but it was 54 
minutes more before we saw pay dirt again. An 
underestimated and inspired B.C. defensive platoon 
completely bottled up our running attack and the 
Eagles bounced back to trail 7-6 at the six minute 
mark. In the second period they drove 92 yards 
straight down the field to take a 12-7 lead, the final 
touch coming on a 24-yard Kane to Capt. Mike 
Roarke pass. From then on it was fought tooth and 
nail. Late in the third period Tom Murphy almost 
went 90 yards on a punt return only to be stopped 
by the last defender in sight. In the fourth stanza, 
the Crusaders picked themselves up off the field and

ground out a relentless 89-yard march. It was a hard 
desperate trek with the Massucco and Doyle batter- 
ing ram grinding out two and three yards at a time. 
A first down on the ten was nullified by a stagger- 
ing 15 yard penalty, but a superb Maloy to McCann 
pass set us up again. It was then that Mel the 
Magnificent commenced on his short but probably 
best run of the year. Smashing upright into the end 
zone from the seven, Mel brought Crusader fans to 
screeching pandemonium as he provided, on the 
last carry of his college career, what appeared to be 
the winning T.D. 

But then it happened! Freshman Jimmy Kane, 
standing on his own 41, loosed a looping pass to 
Tom Joe Sullivan who lugged it to the three. With 
11 seconds to go, Joe Johnson plowed across the 
goal — and it was all over. 

Although we were weeks recovering, six Cru- 

sader Seniors proved our football repute and re- 
ceived post-season bids. Jack Cullity and Dick 
Murphy played in the Blue-Gray game at Birming- 
ham, while Turco, Feltch, Massucco, and McCann 
went to the North-South game in Miami. In that 
game, after his 70 yard T.D. sprint was nullified, 
the breathtaking Turco scored the North's only 
touchdown on a pass from ex-cadet Bob Blaik, and 
was voted the most valuable player on the North 

An unbelievable total of 96 awards were bestowed 
upon our conquering heroes, highlighted by Chet

^ I ^ he season started slowly, and although we won 
■*- our first three games with A.I.C., Rhode Island 
University and Boston University, no one seemed 
too impressed. It seemed as if the right combination 
was yet to be found, and with this 3-0 record, we 
met our first real test with New York University at 
Madison Square Garden. The Crusaders threw a 
scare into the undefeated Violets and forged into a 
32-25 half-time lead, but after a nip and tuck third 
period, the Violets surged into a nine point lead and 
we went down to our first defeat 87-78. 

We next journeyed to Boston to participate in the 
first Boston Invitation Tournament. This tourney, 
according to local sportswriters, was to determine 
the best team in the area, but no one outside of the 
city of Boston was surprised at the outcome. In the 

opening round the Crusaders jumped to an early lead 
against Arizona State, and then ran away with a 78- 
65 victory over the Sun Devils from Tempe. Earle 
Markey had his greatest night of the year, amassing 
a total of 26 points. The next night the finals pitted 
us against arch-rival Boston College. Although the 
undefeated Eagles had eight victories to their 
credit, they quickly found that the reserve strength 
of the Purple was too powerful to lick. It was the 
fourth quarter which finally told the story as we 
poured 28 points through the strings to run off with 
a 78-59 win. The Crusaders also dominated the All- 
Tournament Team, with Earle Markey winning the 
Most Valuable Player trophy and being named on 
the All-Star team with Jim Dilling and Jim Keilley.

Crusaders in '52 was an exciting triumph over the 
New York Athletic Club. The bright spot of the 
evening was the first appearance of the Palazzi- 
Perry scoring punch. Pouring in 27 points between 
them, the Mr. Outside and Mr. Inside of Holy 
Cross led the team to an easy 74-34 victory. 

After that, Trinity, Brown and Providence fell 
before our rush to national honors. Keilley, with 18 
points against Brown, and Markey, who connected 
for 22 against Providence, were the standouts of 
these two games in which we toppled the century 
mark twice. 

Then came the thriller of the year. With two 
seconds left to go in overtime, Capt. Jim Dilling 
coolly sank a free throw to give the Crusaders a 

thrilling upset 66-65 win over St. Louis at the 
Boston Garden. The game was a see-saw battle 
throughout, with Palazzi controlling the boards 
and Perry scoring on long sets. The Billikens, how- 
ever, closed a final period five-point lead to send 
the game into overtime. In the closing seconds of 
the extra period, Markey sank two free throws to 
set the stage for Dilling's Merriwell finish. 

After rolling over an outclassed Tufts team, we 
met a young band of upset-minded giants from 
Canisius who caught us off guard and roared away 
to an unbelievable 49-19 halftime lead. Then 
Markey, scoring 13 points in the third period for a 
Garden record, helped to shave the lead, but it was 
too late and we wound up on the short end of a

surprising 88-69 score. 

After a midsemester rest, the Crusaders, led by 
Freshman Wally Supronowicz, roared back onto 
the victory trail with a rugged 80-75 win over 
Syracuse. Three nights later, however, Columbia 
proved even tougher, but we finally managed to eke 
out an 85-80 overtime win. Colgate became the 
fourteenth victim of the season followed by the 
University of Connecticut and Springfield. In the 
latter game the highlight was the shooting of 

Togo Palazzi who poured in 30 points as he hit on 
15 of his 22 shots. 

In a rough and tumble game highlighted by 
weird officiating, the Crusaders were again forced 
into overtime, this time by B.C., but we came out 
on top 80-74. Perry, who plays best under pressure, 
scored eight points in the extra stanza to wind up 
as high man for the night with 25 points. Dart-

Bruins as he sank 32 points. 

The largest crowd of the season saw us shackle 
St. John's Zeke Zawoluk and go on to beat the 
Redmen 75-70. Keilley and Palazzi were the stand- 
outs of the game as Big Bud held the highly re- 
garded Zawoluk to one basket in the first half while 
Palazzi led the scoring attack with 27 points. 

Then, for the first time in four years, the Cru- 
saders broke the old Yale jinx as they downed the 
Elis 68-59 in New Haven. Behind by one point at 
half-time, the Purple quickly found the mark and 
opened up a ten-point lead at the start of the final 
period. Perry led the scoring with 17 points. 

But the law of averages finally caught up with 
us, and after 27 years of trying, Boston College 
finally eked out a 64-61 "rubber" game victory. 

The sharp shooting of smooth John Silk and Capt. 
Tom O'Toole was too much for the Crusaders and 
we lost our third game of the year. Wins over Dart- 
mouth and Fordham rounded out the season and 
we headed for New York with an impressive 23 
and 3 record. 

Nation-wide Seattle publicity didn't frighten the 
Crusaders, and we deftly turned aside national scor- 
ing champ Johnny O'Brien and his mates in the 
opening round of the National Invitation Tourna- 
ment, 77-72. Markey scored 16 points to enable us 
to gain the quarter-finals and a chance at top- 
seeded Duquesne. Here our hopes were shattered as 
the Iron Dukes superior height and control of the 
backboards sent us down to a 78-68 defeat, and thus 
our season was ended . . .

One of the strongest teams in history reported to 
Coach Jack Barry as he prepared for his thirty- 
second year as Head Coach at Holy Cross. Led by 
Captain Jack Concannon, seventeen veterans were 
on hand to bring Holy Cross back to the top of the 
New England baseball picture. The pitching staff, 
led by big Jim O'Neill, Dick (no-hit) Bogdan and 
Don Slattery, had experienced receivers in Pete 
Naton, Dick Heon and George Vomacka. Fran 
Dyson returned as first-sacker but he found stiff 

competition awaiting him in the persons of Seniors 
Bob Manning, Mike Cariglia and the versatile Jack 
Lonergan. Soph Paul Brissette, the only newcomer 
to the lineup, pushed Johnny Turco back into the 
outfield, and formed a double-play combination 
with Concannon. Frank Matrango rounded out the 
infield at the Hot Corner while Chick Gagnon re- 
turned as a utility infielder Joining Turco in the out- 
field were Art Moossman in center and Dick Hogan 
and Jack Heatherton sharing the Sun Field spot.

The lack of depth in experienced runners proved 
too great an obstacle for the Cross Country team. 
Led by Captain Bill Hahn, the Hill and Dalers 
finished the season with a mediocre record. Hahn, 
running with Bob Shea, Earl DeBlieux and Bruce 
McConnachie, dropped meets to some of the strong- 
est teams in New England, among which were 
Rhode Island State and Brown. 

The Track Team, however, led by Co-Captains 

Irv Gilson and Jim McManus, was among the New 
England champions. Among the distance runners 
Freshman Paul Murphy was a standout in the Mile, 
while Bill Hahn was the two-mile workhorse. In 
the shorter races Bruce McConnachie, Armond 
Garafalo, Jack Toner and Bob Corboy were con- 
sistent scorers. Gilson and Pete Sanderson paced 
the hurdlers while J.J. Sullivan and Jack Daley, 
both Seniors, were the outstanding sprinters. 

In the field events, McManus, New England dis- 
cus champion, was the high scorer, placing with 
both the Discus and the shot. Jack Cooney handled 
the javelin while his brother Mike threw the ham- 
mer. George Foley also added points with the shot. 
Other performers included J.J. Sullivan in the broad- 
jump and Paul Depuis in the high-jump.

Delayed by the lack of ice, the Holy Cross Hockey 
team finally opened their season on January 17, 
dropping a 5-3 match to Amherst. Captain Joe 
Sprague led a squad of ten veterans and four Fresh- 
men through a ten game schedule. Student-coach 
Bob O'Brien again managed the squad, while Junior 
Bob Dolan proved the most promising player on 
the squad. 

The Crusader Swimming Team, in their third 
year of competition, again was one of the strongest 
teams in the East. Led by their Captain and free- 
styler, Bob Dieck, the Mermen rushed to a quick 
start, capturing two of their first three meets. Indi- 
vidual performances by Diver Bob Cronin and 
Breaststroker Jack Weiser were the highlights of 
the season.

Captain Paul Harney. 

The most talented golfer since the days of Willie 
Turnesa led the Holy Cross golf team to a fine 
record this Spring. Captain Paul Harney '52, the 
long-driving Worcester boy who grew up across 
the street from a golf course, put the finishing 
touches on four outstanding years on the Hill. 

Along with Paul were such talented golfers as 
Tucker Campbell and Tom Hovey, Juniors, John 
Tosca, a Freshman, and Hugh Reed, a Sophomore. 
Alternates Joe Sprague and Bob Daley '52, and Bob 

Larkin and Bob Kelly of '53 helped the team con- 

Harney's prominence spread all over New En- 
gland when he won the Massachusetts Open, and 
was a semi-finalist in the New England Amateur 
Tourney, finally losing to the British Amateur 
Champion, Dick Chapman. 

Tucker Campbell also held his own against all 
opponents. After winning the Intramural cham- 
pionship in his Freshman year, he held a regular 
position on the team. Tom Hovey, another member 
of last year's squad, John Tosca and Hugh Reed 
rounded out the first five. 

The team played a fourteen match schedule in- 
cluding a Southern trip during which they played 
Duke, University of North Carolina and V.M.I.

Three Senior veterans returned to face a thirteen 
match schedule this Spring. Heading the group was 
Captain Jack Nawn, along with Jim Holleran and 
Dick Bonahoom. Other veterans included Junior 
Jack Gallagher and Soph Al Block. Last year, 
under the tutelage of Coach Bill Luby '50, the 
Senior group finished the season with eight vic- 
tories, while losing only three matches. 

The Holy Cross Yacht Club, under the guidance 
of Commodore Bill Mergenthaler, competed in 
sixteen matches this year. Using opponents dingh- 
ies, the Varsity and Freshmen sailed in eight races 
in the Fall and eight more in the Spring. Despite 
losses to such teams as Harvard, Brown, Dart- 
mouth and B.C., the sailors managed to qualify 
for the New England Championships.

' I ^he most popular extra-curricular activities at 
■*- Holy Cross are the intra-mural athletics. Very 
few can compete in varsity contests, but almost 
everyone at some time or other has gone to Fresh- 
man Field or up to the gym to represent his corridor 
on the intra-mural team. Long after the N.I.T. 
and the Boston College football game is forgotten, 
the memory of the corridor rivalry will linger. 

Under the direction and guidance of Rev. Francis 
Hart, S.J., and the supervision of student com- 
missioner Bob McCloskey, schedules were ar- 

ranged, tournaments were planned, and All-Star 
players were selected. The football season closed 
with a close contest between Beaven II and Alumni 
II. The boys from Alumni became the football 
champs when Don Slattery caught a Jack Dunbar 
pass and scooted across for the only score of the 
game. Alumni continued their winning ways when 
basketball season rolled around and amassed an un- 
defeated 10-0 record. Other divisional leaders were 
Carlin I, with an 11-0 slate, Beaven II with a 10-0 
record and Beaven I and Carlin II who both posted

identical 9-1 records. 

An off-campus Freshman, John Drislan, gained scoring honors for 
the year as he poured 218 points through the hoop. Bill Morgan, 
who performed for O'Kane IV, was the runner-up with 208 points. 

Fr. Francis J. Hart, S.J., Moderator, talks over the coming 
Basketball Championships with Commissioner Bob Mc-

Battling for a rebound or throwing in a one-hand push is the same in the Intra-Mural League as it is in Madison Square Garden. The 
action is fast, interest is high and competition is keen as teams vie for the coveted championship trophy. 

Basketball became the most popular intra-mural 
sport this year as the corridor teams were split into 
four divisions. The top four teams in each division 
met in the playoffs, with two senior squads, Carlin 
I and Carlin II gaining the finals. Individual stars in 
the tournament included Chick Murphy whose 

Wheeler I team was defeated in the quarter-finals, 
Joe Breen and Tom McCann who helped Carlin II 
defeat previously unbeaten Alumni II in the semi- 
finals, Jim Wilson who netted 22 points for Carlin I 
and Gene Schiller who scored 23 points in a losing 
semi-final cause against Carlin I.

basketball referees who see to it that rules are obeyed and tempers are cooled 
on freshman field and in the gym.

Every person who spends more than a decade on this 

earth experiences, at varied intervals, the 
elusory sense of honor, pride in a job well 
I done or the exuberance of a bountiful break of 

chance. Ignatius was no exception to this 

rule. Perhaps his gladdest moment was his 
conversion, or the founding 
and success of his order, or, more likely, the 
sheer exaltation of his several visions. In our 
scholarly pursuit on Mt. Saint James we 
also have glad moments, either private or shared 
with our fellows. The highest peaks of achievement, 
during the year 1952, are herein chronicled.

CLASS OF 1952 

Freddy Martin was playing, the girls were beau- 
tiful and the Field House was unrecognizable. It 
was 9:00 P.M., May 4, 1951 and the Junior Prom of 
the Class of 1952 was a reality. For months the men 
of '52 had talked of little else. Lights had played on 
the fountain in front of O'Kane as music floated 
toward Beaven. The Tomahawk had run articles 
and printed the "Promhawk." Dates' pictures had 
been entered in the queen contest as Cross men 
ordered corsages and rushed to reserve rooms at the 

Sheraton. Finally plans were complete, cars were 
polished and the girls had arrived. 

It seemed to take weeks to register at the hotel 
and eat dinner but finally we were there. During the 
next few hours the queen was crowned and we 
danced to music that couldn't have been better. 
When the bewitching hour came around our fairy 
tale ended but it never died. At one o'clock the ball 
was over and the most spectacular prom in Holy 
Cross history became ... a memory.

The month was February; the affair was the 
sparkling Senior Smoker. Co-chairman Charlie 
Cahill and Bud Moynihan, with able Ed Scully, 
arranged the gala evening and M.C.'s Chuck Dolan 
and Gerry Sheehan supplied the fun. The two hour 
show was high-lighted by a mock twenty-fifth re- 
union of the class "greats." Various skits, a panto- 
mime, song stylists and the Holy Cross Quartet 
rounded out a night of enjoyment for members of 
the faculty as well as for the seniors. With the 
finale of the Smoker another happy night had been 
added to our many others at the Cross.

The Holy Cross NROTC unit has secured a sig- 
nificant and worthy position on the hill. The Navy 
Ball, a smoker, the annual spring review, "Cross 
Currents," the unit newspaper, the rifle team and 
this year's innovation, a navy basketball team, 
comprise a formidable list of activities here at the 
college. But perhaps the most interesting phase of 
the navy life is the summer cruise which carries 
Holy Cross midshipmen over the seven seas. Our 
hats are off to these our own admirals of the deep.

The United States Air Force, in the form of an 
AFROTC unit, made its appearance at Holy Cross 
this year under the command of Lt. Col. James T. 
Murray and Cadet Lt. Col. Joseph A. Clair, III. 
The group, 250 freshmen and juniors, lost no time 
in becomimg an integral part of college life. They 
appeared regularly on WCHC, in discussions about 
some world trouble spots. A unit basketball team 
was formed, which culminated the season in a 
natural rivalry with the NROTC team, and a news- 
paper, The Flying Cross, edited by Joseph J. Reilly, 
was published semi-monthly. As was only fitting, 
the AFROTC got off to a "flying start" here at 
Holy Cross.

During the seven years that Theatre Guild on the 
Air has been on radio, it has become radio's most awarded 
show— the "surama cum laude" of dramatic programs. 
We are happy that dramatic societies like that of Holy 
Cross College have derived something from a study 
of the techniques of production used on the show. To our 
Sunday evening hour of distinguished drama, we welcome 
such professionally-interested listeners, along with 
our listening audience as a whole. For them, the 
United States Steel Hour presents the great actors 
and actresses of our time in the worth-while plays of 
past and present.

Mr. John W. McG-arry 
Purple Patcher Staff 
Holy Gross College 
Worcester, Massachusetts 

My Dear John: 

We of the Senior Glass wish to extend our congratulations 
to you and your staff for producing one of the finest PATCHERs 
in Holy Gross history, a book that reflects your talent and 
interest. But, more important to you and to us, we wish to 
extend our thanks for giving us a book of which we can be 
sincerely proud: a book emblematic of ourselves, our faculty, 
and our college. 

This yearbook is more than a we 11 -bound volume of copy, 
pictures, and art work, it is a clearly and precisely-drawn 
portrait of a way of life and of the Seniors who have lived 
it for the past four years. vVe offer to you our sincerest 
thanks for preserving Holy Cross for us. Because of your 
work, what we see and feel now we may always see and feel in 
the years to come. 

Very sincerely yours, 



Defense Is Everybody's Job

"COORDINATION" ... a word that can mean a lot to you, even 
more than it does to us. It embodies a principle upon which our 
success depends. It means the proper economy of money, mate- 
rials, and time, but always bearing in mind the kind of a yearbook 
you wish to have produced and of which you will be proud. BJH&S 
learned to appreciate that principle a long time ago. It is for this 
reason that we have consistently advocated the coordination of 
all factors of yearbook production. We are indeed glad to have been 
selected to produce this year's book.
